Missed connection leads to airport adoption

In September 2016, Samantha Snipes missed a flight that would inevitably change her life.

John, you're so beautiful, but tell me why are the ladies getting less sleep?, lol! 💙

That is because the females have to do the hunting 😂

Gorgeous lion. Even in nature females work harder on less sleep and get less recognition. Lol

Figures.

He is beautiful!

Absolutely majestic! 💙💛

wow delete truth about needing of our children in doing away with ohio learning standards aka common core, and AIR tests tying to teachers evals.. seriously are you that bought out b y GATES to silence in asking in support in which you have neglected but chose to be brown shirts to promote what they want you to promote, shameless.. all about $$$$, not what really matters, our children.....

How about fixing ohio learning standards aka, common core, AIR testing tying teachers evals to the tests..with pychimeteric adaptative unfair tests of our children, only for data collection that doesn't even help parents, teachers in gaging the students needs in subjects..because tests results do not help teachers in their classrooms. When students are already promoted to next grade, figjt for our children!
