JENNY, MY JENNY


Jenny, my Jenny, pass the Kleenex, was just in Portland with her work for Generation Rescue. Generation Rescue was started in Portland, and was the first place where Jenny began to find answers for her son's autism recovery. Jenny, my Jenny, now sits on the board. But this woman doesn't sit. She stands. Barefoot. "High heels are bullshit." How do you not LOVE a woman that calls it like it is?? Generation Rescue has created a film, Autism Yesterday, which I just watched. Pass more Kleenex, please. I wasn't able to score access to Jenny's talk in Portland, but I have friends in high places, and one of them DID go, and she stopped by my house today to tell me all about it, and present me with my autographed copy of LOUDER THAN WORDS.

I know the picture above is backwards, so I'll spare you the need to find a mirror, the book says, "To Carrie - Come to Washington D.C. with me! (heart) Jenny McCarthy." I believe she accidently forgot the "My Carrie," part, which is totally understandable as there was a huge crowd and time was of the essence.

I guess Jenny speaks to a lot of mom's groups, and my friend in high places told My Jenny that we have one here, and there's a chance the next time she comes to Portland she'll be joining us. Which is totally exciting, and just makes good sense if My Jenny and I are going to get our Washington D.C. trip all ironed out!

So. There you have it.
