Congratulations, everybody!! Well, it's official: together we have seriously kicked some butt! We grabbed them right by the jugular and made them listen!

It all takes 'due process', but it looks like we might be officially recognizing Oct 15th in Australia from next year! Fingers crossed...

I incorporated all of your suggestions into the 3-minute speech (see link below) that my MP recently brought to the Australian Federal Parliament!!

Many of you asked to see this speech, but I had to wait to hear back from her-- to see if I could make it public. Her message (to all of us, really) is: "I hope this speech allows people to realize the importance of it all. You may use this speech anyway you like. May it bring you and many others peace. See you soon. Kind Regards, Joanna Gash."

Go, Jo!

She spoke in the 'third person' for much of the speech, but she didn't change my words at all. I am so humbled. She has honoured all of our angel babies.

Here's the exact transcript: just scroll down to 'recent news' at http://www.pilari.org/

Thanks again for all of your wonderful support. And to the non-Aussies on this board: your Aussie 'sisters and brothers' will have you to thank too.

Hugs,
Nicole
