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.

I had 300+ pictures on my camera, most of which were taken this past weekend at a weekend. This photo was one of them. I think it shows so much more than what you see.

Asa was in the midst of acting silly and looks a bit drunk and I'm smiling because I'm with him but you can also see that my eyes are red. There was one point in the reception that caused me to fly out of there in order to have my meltdown. I found this photo to be the perfect Juxtaposition; I'm happy for Asa yet right under the surface you see someone who is broken.

Cameo, I have no words. Your journey is so tough every day. Hugs to you, girl. One hour at a time…

I understand that feeling....praying for you! Losing my sister is still very sad...even after 4 years! God bless you!


I think you look beautiful! You took my breath away when I first looked because I thought it was a pic of Trina and Asa.

You have Trina with you everyday even when you look in the mirror.
