In 1887, the artist George F. Watts proposed a tribute of a different sort for Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee. He believed art could act as a force for social change & suggested a monument celebrating "heroism in every-day life."
(2/12) Watts referred to Alice Ayres, a nursemaid who died in a fire after she saved the lives of her employer’s children by throwing a mattress out the window and dropping them to safety. She was then overcome by the fumes and stumbled out of the window to her death.
(3/12) Watts proposed that a marble wall inscribed with the names of everyday heroes be built in Hyde Park. Sadly, his suggestion could not garner enough support, leading him to quip that if he had proposed a race course instead, he would have had plenty of sympathizers.

My husband's dream was to have an orphanage one day. He loves kids a lot. We've been married for 6years before we adopted our little angel, Zahra. People always think the adoption idea was mine, but it was my husband's. He is a very supportive partner.
We got a call one saturday from my husband's niece about new babies at an orphange in another state. We were excited. We tried adopting from our state before trying out the other state. We registered with social services of both states and we were put on a waiting list.
