Child Advocates Unite!
Howdy, all. Did you know that today, Sunday, November 19, is World Day for the Prevention of Child Abuse? Are you familiar with Yes I Can? Yes I Can is short for "Yes I Can Break The Cycle." I sure like that idea. I've had Yes I Can linked on my www.survivorscanthrive.com site for over a year, under my Resources "Advocacy and Prevention" page, and they are, indeed, a wonderful child advocacy and child abuse prevention organization. You can find out all about World Day at www.yesican.org/worldday.html. I just finished up my anual trick-or-treat donation to Unicef, but I can also get involved in World Day through them. To go directly to their web page where you can "Say Yes" for children, go to www.unicef.org/say_yes. Other children's advocacy and child abuse prevention links are, as I said, on my website resource page here.
Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse--6th Edition--Coming Soon!
I am pleased to announce that my friend, Mike, over at the Child Abuse Survivor blog, will be hosting the sixth edition of our Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse. He has set the deadline for this Wednesday, November 22 (midnight), for a Saturday, November 25 carnival post. Hurry and get your submissions in. As usual, the categories for submissions are: Survivor Stories, Poetry, News, Healing & Therapy, Aftermath, and Advocacy & Awareness. You can go directly to this submission form at Blog Carnival dot com, or visit Mike's blog for more information.
Just got back this weekend from vacation and had an interesting discovery that I am a multiple with four other people in me. My friends tell me that they knew all along I was a multiple, they my others are very protective of me. But I am doing good with this and so is Dewy.
just wanted to let you know that I have been thinking of you. Hope all is well.
I'll hopefully be back to share comments as I learn more of what a blog carnival is.
Thanks for visiting Babygirl! Hope you enjoy the blog carnival, now that it's up.
