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.

Merry Christmas

I can't believe how great this picture turned out! I swear I have the cutest kids!
It's so bittersweet because I see how big they're getting and I just want to talk to sissy about them. We were supposed to raise our kids together. We had both waited until we were "older" to have kids and we had all these plans of what we were going to do. Every time we drove past the school we would always say "that's where Asa and Valentina are going to go to school! We can go pick them up together." All of these things that we were going to do are gone and I'm here without her and I can't believe it. I miss her so much and honestly do not know how we are doing this. It seems as if every day is worse. But these two children are the loves of my life.
