Musings and thoughts as we work through the process of bringing our children home via international adoption.
Do you know where Jake is from? I kinda of assumed Utah but one of the KSL stories said the Sun Country Plane came from Minnesota. Also do you know if Avrie and Destina are Category 1 or 2? Sorry for the questions, just don't have a way to get a hold of Michelle.
I think he is from Minnesota but I'm basing that on KSLI have no idea what status any of the kids are now. EVERYONE has to go to Florida.
Jake's too great to incarcerate!
Oh crud! I spelled his last name Yonkers in my email. Hopefully they'll know who I was talking about. But Yonkers made for some great ideas- something about saving us from "out in Yonkers", or I'm sure there's something cool related to New York in there. I'll have to think a little more about Yockers. give me a few.Trudi
Mikey, That's funny!! How about- Please don't socker Yocker!Okay, maybe not
Should we create a FB fan page for him, and get the word out on Twitter tomorrow, when there are lots of people on there? Email me - saintless/gmail, if you want me to move ahead with this.
Jake did what was rightWon't go down without a fight
Get him on the news in Utah and in his home market. That'll get sympathy for him so that if anything happens they'll think twice about it.Better yet, get him on the Today show and 20/20 and all over the place as a hero for saving children!
Posted about him on Oprah.com - she has a site about Haiti and a ton of people are looking at it.
OK I have a feeling this chant thinking is going to keep me up tonight. But here is another :-)Don't punish Jake for being braveReward him for lives he saved
Brooke, where on Oprah.com did you post it? I think this entire story should be on Oprah :)
This has nothing to do with your question, but I have been reading your blog and praying for those sweet little children. I was just watching FOX 13 news tonight and they said that 140 something kids got on that plane!! Is that true? I really hope so. My heart goes out to all of the parents waiting for their babies to come home. Fly safe little Haitian Angels!! Oh and WAY TO GO JAKE YOCKERS!!! Oprah would love to hear about him!!!
For the childrens sake save Jake.
I have been gone for a few hours and I can't say how thrilled I was to come home to your updates! Sending up prayers that include many thanks for heroic Jake Yockers!
Save the man who saved the children!
How about...Focus on Stalkers--Don't Punish Yockers!!orHeaven Sent Jake---Give Him a Break!!or this...Don't Be A Snake Back Off of Jake!!or this...Yockers Schmockers Go After the Jay Walkers!!--MDS/Utah Rally Support Team
