    Thanks very much. That means a lot to me:)
    I tried to respond to you last evening, but it didn't go
    thru, so I am trying again:)
    I swear I would have never posted the ad had I known it'd
    cause so much chaos, however I am glad I did because, a lady
    contacted me she lives very far away from anything, and no
    sanctuary's near her, she came across me and now she has a
    home for her baby........ So depsite all that has been said
    and posted here, something good always comes out the bad:)
    I know people are going to say what they want, and so,
    let'em. I know who I am, I know what i do, and sp do people
    that TRULY know me.
    Anyways, thanks again, you are much bigger perso nthan most
    here who have posted:) Godbless
