In less than 24-hours, more than 12,000 of you read it.
I was shocked, too.
But I kept feeling a nudge: Do more.
And so we did.
I thought I knew politics, but I was wrong.
Neutrally covering politics for TV news is quite different than meeting legislators and having a vested interest in the work they're doing.
|It was great to thank Sen. Jeff Danielson in person for supporting Iowa families like ours. He is committed to equality, and we're grateful to have him advocating for Iowa families.|
|Sen. Matt McCoy has some young "fans" in our kiddos! He was one of the original sponsors of the proposed legislation that would impact families like ours.|
|Our group got to meet Rep. Charlie McConkey who is a supporter of equality for adoptive families. He introduced our group to the entire House after they gaveled in at 1 p.m,. We're so grateful for his advocacy.|
When our families [built via adoption] are seen equally by employers, we're better employees. When we're better employees, our businesses are stronger. When our businesses are stronger, our communities thrive.
This proposed legislation is good for people, families, businesses and communities.
It's a win-win-win-win.
That I can still feel my neck and shoulders after weaving our way through the Capitol with two kids and diaper bags in tow!
But seriously, friends.
Your voice matters.
