Sid came to our house because his prior family faced a choice. They have a daughter with developmental issues, and the strain of what were in essence two eternal toddlers was too much- They asked me, I asked Sam, and Sam took Sid in. I know this other family from my job outside the blog, and I they knew I was "bird folk" so they gave him up rather than trying the craigslist shuffle. They wanted him to have a good, loving home more than they wanted to sell a cockatoo and cage for $1000.
Fast forward three Christmases and a little more- My friend is trying to get a bike for her special needs daughter. And she asked me if I could spread the word. She asked me if I could become an ambassador for her daughter. I asked if that gave me diplomatic immunity, and apparently it does not, but I decided to assist anyway.
I want to help, and maybe you do too.
Right now, you are asking how. All it takes is your vote.
