Matched 8 years. The Child first lived with mom when entering the program and then moved to dad’s due to mom’s substance abuse. Over the year’s dad has struggled with her daughter’s adolescent stuff. Dad recently decided it was more important to have a girlfriend than a daughter. So dad voluntarily gave up his rights and the child was placed in foster care at age 14. She has been in 4 different foster care placements in the area over the last 18 months. All the while the Big Sister has stayed connected with her. She talk’s to her regularly and they see each other as often as they can.
7 mile morning run with the Hammer straight into a stiff north wind with some rain. Not the most pleasant of runs but got it done! about 2 days ago
