Sending an #UltraHug to some very important girls...12:08:00 AM
Once upon a time...
Thank you Huggies for your kindness and in sponsoring this post. You inspired me to try Huggies Snug and Dry Ultra Diapers and you are letting us have a voice for others.
This post is a hard one to write. Only because my heart and mind cannot stop thinking about the young girls who NEED to win. A non-profit that is selflessly rescuing and rehabilitating the lives of young girls. Some as young as 11 years old.
You have no idea where I am going with this do you? When I look at my children, I see innocence. I see promise. I see a future. Sadly some look at their daughters in a different way. And then they sell them to people who do very bad things to them. Unimaginable and heartless things. And this is where I stop to catch my breath as the tears fall onto the keyboard.
I am nominating New Day for Children. New Day doesn't give up on the hurting. The girls that come to them do not age out, instead they are a part of the family. They are there for the heartless act of human trafficking that is going on HERE in the USA. An estimated 300,000 girls are held for trafficking. The average age...13. My dearest friend went to the undisclosed location and spent time with some of the girls. She heard stories that left her reeling. Her emotions are raw and although she is a mama herself, she has turned into an advocate for the young women she has met. And you know what? She is opening the eyes and hearts of those around her. I am one of those people.
