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.

Things have been going to hell in a hand basket lately and rather than sit here and bitch about it I'm just going to say things are hard. Unbelievably difficult and I never thought it could get worse. It can, it will and it does. I'm so fortunate for my family, especially the kids and Beya. I don't take one second with them for granted. It will be impossible to not compare the next few weeks to last year. I have no clue how we will get through them but we will, along with the weeks and months after that. No matter how hard I want to change things, to stop things, to keep things from happening, I can't. So instead I'm hibernating.



Totally understand. I'm hibernating too; have been for the last two weeks.

Just popped my head out long enough to send you prayers for strength as this difficult month begins.

You all remain in my thoughts and prayers.

No words, my friend. I just send you all lots and lots of love. I know I pretty much say it every time I comment, but anything I say just sounds so silly coming out. So, I'd rather just say I love you guys, and will continue to send you all my love. ((hugs)) from AZ to you.
