Greatest Potential

Emma like my sister could have the greatest Potential. Here's what I shared when I posted this video on youtube 3 weeks ago: My sister, Sarah, dancing to Animals as performed by Jeremy Gaynor & Rob Taylor on The Voice on NBC #teamchristina
Original credit of this song goes to Maroon 5
We were watching The Voice on NBC which she is a huge fan of, watching it every week, never missing it. Since last week when seeing the preview for the 3/18 show of Team Christina's Rob Taylor & Jeremy Gaynor performance she has brought down her mask each time hoping it will come on & when it came on yesterday she asked if we could video her dancing to it. I want to share this, We all tend to judge on the outward appearance by putting our own "mask" on seeing them whether by their look or by their disability but don't see them for the person they are. They on the other hand wish others could treat them the same as everyone else not judging them by their "mask" of what this world sees Different. Sarah is more than just her Down Syndrome or her Selective Mutism, she is a Normal girl who loves to dance, watch TV shows like The Voice on NBC, loves Disney, Singing, & so much more. I'm her sister & I want the world to see her despite any "mask" she might have.
Emma Grace just needs some help to come home to her family so she can shine like the beautiful girl she is & have that potential! WE HAVE JUST 4 DAYS LEFT TIL THE DREAM IS A WISH YOUR HEART MAKES GIVEAWAY ENDS & STILL GREAT CHANCES AT WINNING A PRIZE!! Don't you love the sweetness in my sisters smile helping me pick out these items for the Giveaway?
And who here loves Toy Story? I sure do!
Few weeks ago when I posted that video to the Voice contestant twitter pages they both commented on it so you see you never know what a tweet, share, or prayer can do! You gain 1 FREE ENTRY JUST BY SHARING ON EACH SOCIAL MEDIA SITE! So 1 for twitter, 1 for fb, 1 for Instagram, 1 for Blogging, etc. SO SHARE, TWEET CELEBRITIES, & SHARE SOME MORE! This girl needs to come home! & you can donate here

A beautiful soul

A Beautiful soul, lost her battle to Cancer on Thursday morning. I have known many people who have lost their battle to the dreadful C word, & I know others who have beaten that word. But never did I have the honor of knowing such a kindred spirit such as Elizabeth.

Though I never had the pleasure of knowing her in person, I was blessed to know her in this wonderful adoption advocate community. Like my friends who lost their battle to Cancer, Elizabeth never stopped fighting. On days when she did not feel well she was wanting to distract herself so thus the "DeHority Distraction" was born donating her beautiful socks knit with love to help orphans with special needs come home to their forever families. Many have come home because of her Distractions & she wasn't just an advocate. 
She was a Mom to her children, & a wife to her Husband but yet she went beyond & became a friend to soo many people. 

Her legacy will live on & continue to inspire others just like she has for me. Elizabeth, I know I never really chatted with you much online but know you are another of the ones who have encouraged me on days when I have wanted to Give up whether it was a personal struggle or advocating for orphans. Your determination to keep going no matter the pain you were in is inspiring. I will keep fighting for orphans just like you & help to continue your legacy.
So what best way to honor such a beautiful soul than a Distraction? 
You may know about our Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes Giveaway to help bring Emma Grace home to her forever family. I have a new prize to add, what's a princess to do on a beautiful day outside? Why have a Picnic of course!
Can I get some distractions today to help Emma Grace come home?
Lastly a beautiful new girl was listed on an advocating site in Elizabeth's honor would you mind dropping even just $5 into her grant?
