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.

Only Valentina......

This morning when Valentina got out of the tub I had her clothes ready for her.



"NO MAMA!!!! I NEED TO WEAR SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL!!!! THIS isn't beautiful. I NEED something BEAUTIFUL!!!!"

Rather than sit and argue with her, especially on a day when we aren't going anywhere (school days are rough, she likes to design and layer her outfits to suit her "eclectic" style) so I told her to go pick out some clothes.

This, THIS is what she picked out:


Look familiar???? It's basically identical to what I had picked out..... but THIS was BEAUTIFUL!

Yesterday at Red Robin.
