I'm celebrating a special birthday and what has been a monumental year! I am passionate about working with an animal rescue group and teaching others about the importance of caring for all living things. Right now, I'm really excited about the litter of puppies I'm helping to foster. I am old enough to know what's important to me. I get out of bed and try to make a difference each day. I stand for kindness, compassion and commitment. I'm a student and a teacher. Right now, the possibilities are endless and everything is changing for me in the most wonderful way."
