Help Save Veronica Capobianco!!

Look at this sweet face. This is Veronica. She is 2. She is 4 months younger than my John-Michael. Tonight her Mommy & Daddy are missing her.

Veronica was in the process of being adopted, when at the 11th hour, the Cherokee Nation stepped in and halted the adoption. Court rulings now made this little girl to be taken from the only home she has never known, and driven 1100 miles away to Oklahoma.

In 1830, the United States instituted the Indian Removal Act of 1830. In 1838, the Cherokee nation was forced to move to Oklahoma. The Cherokee call the event Nu na da ul tsun yi—“the Place Where They Cried." Now, 174 years later, the Cherokee Nation made this two year old child embark on her own Trail of Tears, due to the abuse of the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1977. On New Years Eve, she was taken from her Mommy & Daddy, put into a truck with strangers, and driven 1100 miles away to Oklahoma.

Please go to Save and join the fight. Spread the news on Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and message boards.

Saint Thomas More, Saint Clotilde, Saint William of Rochester, pray for this family & for this adoption!

Happy New Year!

Good bye 2011, HELLOooooo 2012!!

We are so looking forward to all of the blessings & challenges that 2012 will be bringing us this year.

Do you do resolutions?? We don't. We make goals for ourselves for the year and strive to meet them. I haven't set down yet with DH and make them up, so will will be doing those and posting those soon.

One new change this year is for my Motivated Moms Planner. Last year, my good friend Tiffany, told me about this planner and it helped to simplify my life! This year, I bought the Motivated Moms App to save trees!!

Starting this year off, I went to The Saints Name Generator and got a name for our Patron saint of the year.

St. Maximilian Kolbe

was chosen as our saint for 2012. St. Maximilian Kolbe, pray for us!!

I hope 2012 brings you many blessings!!
