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.

These women took militant action as well as raising petitions etc. My fave is Mary Maloney who followed Churchill round Dundee in 1908 ringing a bell because he wouldn't address the issue. /2 Scottish suffragettes raising a petition

One in particular is Dr. Bill Jenkins who transitioned in February. His work exposing the atrocities of the U.S. Public Health Service’s Tuskegee Syphilis Study is an example of how we should all speak truth to power.
