It is fucking crazy that this hasn't been reported by mainstream media from the start. 37 black and latinx girls have gone missing in the past month from the DC area - as many as 14 have gone missing in the last 24 hours. And the media is virtually silent. If not for social media most of us would never hear about this and it's unacceptable. These innocent girls could be the victims of sex trafficking. I'm sorry but you cannot pretend that if 14 white girls went missing yesterday and were suspected to be sold into sex slavery that the media wouldn't be reporting it. That there wouldn't be amber alerts and a federal investigation already well underway. DC police stated this morning that no amber alerts can be issued unless there is evidence that the suspect is in immediate danger... WHAT?! I've seen Amber alerts go out for kids who have been taken by a PARENT in a custody battle and that somehow is more foreboding than a suspected sex trafficking ring? These girls are absolutely in immediate danger as is the rest of the DC community. Please repost, please contact your representatives, please tag your local news stations and publications and demand they publicize this. This should be a nationwide emergency.

Celebrating this morning because we are out of the danger zone with this little one! She's maintaining a good temp, putting on weight, and finally pooped! Lolol. Between caring for her and Hermes (and all the other babies who just make trouble for fun) the past few days have been pretty hilarious and hectic. Bottle feeding is a lot of mess and no sleep and constant worry, but it's totally worth it. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸΏβ€οΈ Now help me name this sweetie pie!

If you want safe sex, baby use the knee pads πŸ™‡πŸ»πŸ˜‡

OMG OMG OMG YOU GUYS 😍 Look at this baby I just rescued!! She's so cute I can't take it.

Seeing you got ritualistic
Cleansin' my soul of addiction for now πŸ’‹ #gottaquotethatnewdraketho #thisisdirectedaticecream #jkthoimnotaquitter

I just flooded my story with opossum videos because I spotted this little opossum and she seemed hurt so I fed her a bunch of fruit and seeds but it turns out she was totally fine and taking advantage of my weakness for cute opossums but that's ok because she really is cute and she ate watermelon right from my hand and I only screamed a little ❀️😍 wow I love animals 😍❀️ P.S. opossums are very gentle and shy creatures so please don't hurt them! They never attack unless provoked and even then they are more likely to just play dead or run! They eat bugs and snakes and won't go after your pets so please let them be πŸ™πŸ½

Keepin' a weather eye out πŸ‘€ πŸ˜‚

The world produces about 2.9 trillion pounds of garbage EVERY YEAR. Americans are some of the worst offenders. We make up 5% of the world's population, but generate over 30% of the world's garbage. Less than 2% of that waste is recycled. This means that the majority of our cans, plastic bottles, bags, etc. end up in the earth and in the ocean. Animals become tangled in our trash, causing them injury or death. So many birds and marine animals end up dead because they eat plastic or other trash. We are destroying entire ecosystems because we are lazy. Every time I go to the beach I see more plastic than shells. It's heartbreaking and we have to do something about it. The simplest thing you can do is pick up after yourself whenever you're in nature - this seems so simple yet clearly people aren't doing it! When you hike or go to the beach, take a compost able bag and pick up litter as you go. Try to refuse your use of plastics in general. Many companies are switching to compost able containers for to go options and this is great! If your favorite restaurant isn't doing so, consider suggesting it to them. πŸ’™β™»οΈπŸŒŽ P.S. These shirts will be available soon and 100 PERCENT of proceeds will go to animal and environmental charities πŸ™ŒπŸ½

What's your name? Who's your daddy? Is he rich like me?

Lazy Saturdays 😻❀️🐱 I'm soaking up my last bit of time with my foster babies until they go to their incredible forever home! It's so exciting when you find the perfect family for an animal you rescue ❀️❀️ @shelldashing you are going to be obsessed

My face when I found out we will be diving with hammerheads and bull sharks on Monday 😬😻 #excitedandslightlynervous My friend assumed I would no longer be going because of my accident and I laughed. Unless my full body is in a cast I will be getting in that water - cracked ribs and all! πŸ˜‚ This will be my first shark dive and I can't wait to be up close to such beautiful wild animals! Sharks need our protection and understanding now more than ever. It is estimated that humans currently kill around 100 MILLION sharks PER YEAR. That is 11,417 sharks killed every hour. And that is a conservative estimate. It's likely that the number is closer to 270 million. This gross exploitation has thrown off our entire ecosystem and is getting to a point that our oceans may soon be empty for good. πŸ˜­πŸ’” This year I want to focus more energy on marine life and ocean conservation and hopefully we can all help educate each other and work towards saving these animals!

Well this certainly wasn't in my plan. Everything happens for a reason though, right? Once I got past the shock and pain and anger at myself and overwhelming fear of my ambulance/hospital bill - I could feel that. Underneath everything there is a constant current of energy reminding us that there is a higher plan. That we are supported. That even when a situation seems unfavorable, there is a bigger picture we may not be able to see. So I'm trying to trust and lean into that feeling, even though right now I really don't understand what the upside of a totaled car, fractured ribs, and crushing debt could be. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­ But I do absolutely know that it could've been much worse. I blacked out for a second because I hit the airbags so hard (my chest looks like it's covered in hickies lol) and when I opened my eyes everything was blinding white. I was briefly confused about whether I was alive or dead but then my senses came back and I realized the white I was seeing was not the other side (😹) I could smell burning and started choking on the powder from the airbags. My first thought was, "Holy shit, these things saved my life". And I'm grateful for that. I'm grateful no one else was hurt. I'm grateful that of the many stupid times I have neglected to wear my seat belt, last night wasn't one of them. I probably wouldn't be typing this if it had been. I'm grateful for my best friend of 22 years who asked only "Are you ok?" and "Where are you?" and drove two hours to me without me even having to think to ask. And maybe that's the only point to this - that in struggle we gain perspective. I guess I'll have to wait and see.
