Updates :)

Wow! It has been a long time since I posted- and we have been through a lot around here! As readers have known, Shelby Angel has been through a journey that has lasted over one year.

And every day I would pray that her real family would come to get her. Shelby and I asked out loud every day "where are you????"

Through the year, we have contacted many rescue groups for assistance in placing her. We had the door closed on us many, many times. We were the recipient of hurtful emails and words. We were bogged down in the negativity and ugliness of others. It was draining for both Shelby and I- we just about lost all positivity, even in ourselves. At one point this month, we thought we would have to put Shelby Angel down as we could not find an appropriate home for her and had no resources.

Fortunately there have been some really great people that stepped in to pick us up when we were down. This is not an inclusive list by any means, but I would like to say thank you to Tracy Gullett, Toni, and my father and sister. Extra thanks to those of you that sent kind emails, offers to foster, and offers of support (there are too many of you to list, but you know who you are!). It was amazing what the network of POSITIVE individuals did to assist us.

I will give better details shortly, but I wanted to quickly let you guys know that Shelby Angel has a place to stay and we now have some assistance in the adoption process. Thank goodness!!!!!! Details to come.

Again, thank you for all of your help. Thank you for giving us hope.


  1. Oh Damie! I had no idea it had come to all that. Can't wait to hear the good news. Hugs to you and Shelby!

  2. Thank you for giving her a chance at life she would otherwise not had. You and your family are wonderful! If you see Shelby please give her lots of love from me. Keep us posted on what we can do to help her find her forever home!
