– Outfit #12 to stand up against modern-day slavery/human trafficking & promote modesty!
–If you’d like me to borrow your clothes to spread awareness against human trafficking and promote modesty, please E-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I was sent this very cute and ladylike outfit from Miskabelle, a glorious etsy shop (which I’ve shopped at before to get this outfit). Make sure you stop by & buy something there! They have a 20% off sale this week with the code “GETBEACHY”. They also sent me a cute cameo in which I put a ribbon through it for the outfit because I couldn’t find a necklace chain. If you would like to purchase the blouse or skirt, please e-mail email@example.com (since it’s not listed on their etsy). Make sure to follow their twitter too! Don’t forget their blog too! Thanks SO much to Jayme and Manda who run the shop!

We got free passes from Rob’s job to a county fair about an hour away in our state. We went one other time when I was pregnant with Micah and thought the boys would really enjoy it together. We left when it started to drizzle (we were there a few hours).
The boys loved this truck
Leto got to sit on a few things and pet some animals
The photo on the left is from a little musical that these produce items put on (they moved around and such). Leto was eating a chicken nugget when I took his picture.
Reason why I’m doing this #12:
Recently on my facebook fanpage
I posted a video about Stella’s Voice
, an organization that helps orphans from Moldova in danger of being put into sexual exploitation and sex trafficking. There are many children who are abandoned or become orphans in the country of Moldova (as well as many other countries). Poverty is very high in Moldova. When a child turns 16 years old in an orphanage, they are usually given a handful of pocket cash and are expected to make it out in the world on their own, when they don’t even know much about life outside of the walls of their orphanage. Sex Traffickers (which is a nicer term for the word Pimp) hang around these orphanages waiting to offer a kind hand to these children, making them trust them. They then are threatened, beaten, forced, or fall in love with their pimps (who use great tactics of power to make a girl especially believe that the pimp loves her by treating her like poop). Then they are raped, sometimes even drugged before the rape and eventually become addicted to the drugs so they don’t have to feel the pain as much. The pimp then will tell her she needs to get him money since she loves him and he is all she has. This is what happens around the world, but Stella’s Voice
specifically helps protect these orphans from harm as well as helping orphans out of the lifestyle they were put into by giving them a safe place filled with warmth and love to build a future of hope for them. They have a safe house for girls and a safe house for boys. They have a third safe house (these are large houses by the way) but I think it’s a combination co-ed home. If you want to help donate money, go here
. You can also donate a dollar a day and have a chance to go to Moldova to visit and help out (I’d love to be a part of that)!
