Hi friends, usually I come to you to share what I've been up to, but today I have a request. My little sister (who was adopted a year ago today) is selling Girl Scout cookies. She's working really hard at it, but has speech problems and is very hard to understand - despite this she and I went out for two hours and tried to sell cookies last night. She was very brave and tried to talk to every...Read Full Post »

Thank you to everyone who has reached out to make sure we are safe.

We have made all the preparation we can so now it's just a matter of waiting out the storm. We are blessed our home is well built and safe, many are not so lucky and shelters have open at my school, Apopka High School and at Apopka Middle school. I know the kids m...Read Full Post »

I feel like it has taken me a while to get We Care Bears off the ground in Florida - but slow and steady wins the race...or at least that's what my Dad says.

Look what came in the mail yesterday!!! It was such a surprise. I love Disney and receiving a Disney Dreamers and Doers Award is really special. Moving to Florida has been hard, starting my work here has been hard, I don’t know anyone and no one has really heard of We Care Bears. But I’m working hard to change that.
