get the rock out of here

********revised: ok, blogalicious rocks my face off!!  here's my new blog design that i won thru SITS.  it's amazing!!!  more tomorrow...but today, check it out!!!**********

i know it's november...but we rocked out the high school 80's party saturday. paige and i had so much fun getting together all the outfits (and laughing the whole time).

ryan...became the hair band rocker.  watch out axel rose.
me...def a madonna-ish, punk valley girl.
paige...16 candles
brooke...debbie gibson (post halloween sale on hannah montana for $1.24)
sofie...flash dance
and jada...she opted to stay with krystal and have girls night painting nails and eating popcorn.  you totally have to start them young!

without further adieu: behold...the rocker fam.  {i'm not sure we pull off the punky, mad at the world well...we can't even not smile!!!}

oh, that's def ryan's class ring.  be jealous!

we like totally danced all rad and stuff to thriller...and then did like fav movie clips from top gun and goonies and like dirty dancing.  my small group of girls rocked out the trivia game...and won it all, like rock stars.  it was rad when we got a whole totally awesome bag of reeses cups to eat!  like, awesome!  (ok, my head is hurting now)

well, happy monday...ryan is off again today.  boooooo. but i guess i can just remember his hotness in those skin tight camo/bedazzled, tight rolled pants and keep him close to my heart. {puke}

adoption tidbit for the day

one of the means of adopting a child is through what is called special needs adoption.  our jk is one of those kiddos.  special needs is defined a number of ways, but the basic jest is that these children are harder to place in adoptive homes.  they may be part of a sibling group, part of a minority race (is this america peeps?), at-risk or even just too old for what most folks choose to adopt.  in most cases, there are special services, like medicaid and per diems available for SNAP kids.  to find out more about special needs adoption, take a look at adopting.org.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yours is too cute! And I love that you have chosen to take part in adoption! I'm adopted, and was blessed to be adopted by my aunt. It can sometimes be a challenge, but know that there are so many rich blessings to be enjoyed from it! And most of all, you become like the father above, who has adopted us.

Blessings!
Racquel

Thanks for sharing all the adoption tidbits this month...I was adopted at 3 days old, 34 years ago. My adoption took place right after Roe vs. Wade was enacted, and I thank the Lord that my biological parents made the right decision in not aborting, but giving me up for adoption.
