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.

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig

Beya and Papa went to the cabin yesterday. My great friend had told me Friday night that the house was safe and the fire was about a mile north of it. What great news! I know, the fire was a whole MILE away!!! Before that would have sounded close, now it seems like 60 miles. But mom and papa were able to get in yesterday. Mom said the sky was even blue. They contemplated spending the night but mom knew I would have fuh-reaked so they didn't put me though that. Thank you mom!

They packed up a few things just on the off chance that the winds pick up and the fire takes a turn. We got the pictures. a few things from Guatemala, a few items of my grandparents and oh, the most important, the kids' big bears. They SCREAMED with delight when mom walked through the door last night with those in hand.

So everything is ok and I'm glad the cabin didn't get burned up.
