We were the closest family possible. Our world was turned upside down on 05/03/09 when my best friend, the person I love most next only to our children, my sister Trina was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Her body gave out on her on 01/09/10 but she will ALWAYS be a part of our daily life and will continue to be in my posts. I started my blog to chronicle our daughter's international adoption from Guatemala and have continued to use it as a journal.

What you will find is my family trying to adapt to our new lives that were handed to us.

(RED) Challenge Grand Totals

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK!!!!!!!!

Thank you everyone who participated in the Product (RED)/Global Orphan Team Challenge! Our grand total is:

For The Global Fund: $5.30
For Global Orphan Team: $100

We raised enough money just by drinking coffee to provide someone with 12 days of life saving medicine!!!! You ALL deserve a HUGE pat on the back!

A few months I was reading a blog of this young girl who whined about the worlds problems and I encouraged to get involved, make a change. She complained "but I'm just one person, I can't do anything." My friends, we proved her wrong!!!! Tell that to the person who will receive the 12 days of medicine in Africa. Tell that to the kids in Guatemala who we just helped via GOT. A whole bunch of "one person's" can and just did make a difference!!!!! So here's a special thanks to you:
