Story image 1_0

A parent in Crete Sixpence program was selected to be part of the Zero to Three's new Think Babies campaign, Strolling Thunder which took place in Washington, DC May 2, 2017.  Zero to Three invited babies and families from all 50 states to Capitol Hill to meet with their elected congressman and share their story about why Congress must “Think Babies.”

We are very proud that Daisy Ortiz and her daughter Kayla Garcia Ortiz from the Crete Sixpence program were selected and represented Nebraska. Daisy was able to meet face to face with Nebraska senators Deb Fischer, Ben Sasse and Adrian Smith and share her story of being a successful teen mom. Daisy is currently attending UNL and majoring in gerontology and psychology.
