We hit a HUGE milestone today and YOU made it happen! We have now given over $104,000 to our non-profit partners and funded over 2,671 hours of survivor employment. YOU are fighting for your sisters. YOU are working to end exploitation. And YOU continue to inspire. Thank you. What milestone’s ass will we kick next?! #stoptraffick#endexploitation
IN TRANSITION. Today's focus is to transition me to safe sleeping for home. Due to my difficulties in breathing & reflux, I usually slept in a reclined crib. The new goal is to help me gradually sleep on my back & on my own. I will attempt to sleep on a flat crib. I really hope I do good on this. I've been so used in an upright position. In the next days, the nest/cocoon that hugs me into protection will be slowly removed. Any object that I was used to providing me comfort will be taken away. My nurses said I shouldn't be sleeping on recline when nobody's watching me because there's a tendency to droop my head down & suffocate. Swaddling is also not recommended if nobody's watching me. The best to prevent sudden infant death syndrome is that I am able to lay flat on my crib without anything, not even my pillow womb. Transitions are always tough. Imagine being used to something for 70+ days and now I'm supposed to get used to a different setting in a few days!😩 I wanted to complain, even protest because my attitude might change too. From a cool & secured baby, I may be a cry baby when I get home because I'm used to all the comforts & cares of NICU. But I know all these preparations are for my own long term good. NICU journey is a snap shot of real life. It all starts with nurturing and then slowly weaning a person to be a more independent human being. Hopefully all my health issues will be fully resolved prior to me going home. Then, I will have a better chance continuing my trek. I'm excited to go home at the same time apprehensive of how my transition will work out & moreso how we will all adjust to my care without all my gadgets and medical team. Finger crossed, let the dice roll!

Another mile stone. I remember nearly six years ago when I rescued my Sport Classic from a man who had more money than wits. The owner had never learned to ride and had it on his living room floor as an art peice. After 4 years of collecting rich people dust he decided to part with it and consign her to the the showroom of the late Salt Lake Motorsports . Having bikes as a show piece is fine however I feel they must first earn the right to be retired, after years of use. When I found Valentina her odometer read 303 miles. It was early 2012 when we met and I was compelled to rescue her. Pretty birds should not be kept in cages. She’s been mine ever since, each mile better than the last. She’s taken me down many roads. Some you can see, others you can not. Not looking forward to the day I finally retire her, but I know it will be well deserved.

My favorite part of every baby is definitely the Buddha bellies 😍😍 This might be embarrassing, but do you ever have the urge to kiss a baby that's not yours? Why do I feel like I could be the mom of every baby I meet? 😂😂
