2012 in Retrospect- Who Knew?

on January 1, 2013

Happy New Year!

It’s been a big year for everyone.  We have grieved losses, gained new blessings, and stayed strong for another year.  I am in awe of the accomplishments made by people in and out of the advocacy community.  The holidays have gotten so crazy that I never caught up on my posts, so you’ll get a few extras to catch up on some highlights I witnessed personally.  Here are some that made the headlines in the news:
