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.

Today we had a big family lunch. We're trying to do it more often as it's a surefire way to get Joshua to eat. I set all 8 places. Mom said we were 1 too many but I told her I couldn't set only 7. Later on while we were eating, Asa saw the empty chair and asked who was going to sit there. I told him it was an extra.
