B - Blackout - Breathe Carolina

First of all, my apologies to anyone who finds this video offensive, but I adore this song!

Speaking of blackouts, I guess I should give you an adoption update. After suffering several weeks of our own blackout of information, we have finally received the details on the little girl we are hoping to adopt through foster care. Since she's 14, I should probably not call her a 'little girl' but she is, so that's what I'm sticking with. Basically, based on the information we received, we know there are many struggles ahead of us - she's had some rough experiences and they've taken their toll on her - but we feel up to the task and are looking very forward to having the opportunity to parent this special little girl.

We know it will be at least 3 months before we can make any forward movement with her placement with us but, in the meantime, we're going to finish our last 2 weeks of IMPACT training classes and complete our homestudy. Hopefully, when the situation is appropriate to work on her placement, we'll be in the perfect place.

Wish us luck!

Interesting song/video... :)

Hoping that the completion of your training and homestudy goes by quickly and without any snags or snafus. It sounds like this 'little girl' really needs a safe place to call home. And who better than you guys to provide it?

I've been wondering how things were going. Thanks for the update! You and your "little girl" are definitely in our prayers. :)

Good luck with all the adoption stuff. I'm going to check out the song tomorrow. It's too late for noise right now :)
