Well, results of Snapper's speech contest are in. She won 1st place in her 4th period English class (the vote was unanimous), and will now compete against five other students for the honor of representing her school at the regional public speaking competition! Two students will be chosen, and she really, really wants to win. I'm hoping with all my heart that she does, not just because it would be fun to see her win. I really want for her to have a chance to be an advocate for adoption. What a great platform regionals would be for her! I don't know yet when the next round of competition is, but I'm pretty sure it's next week.
