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.

Fire Update Part II

The fire had hit the end of our driveway as of this afternoon. Our driveway is about a half mile long. There is only one way in and out of the cabin and that is where the fire is.

There is a list of people that the officials are notifying when that persons home or property has been lost. Fingers crossed, Beya and Papa are not yet on that list.

Again, a big thank you to my friend who is keeping me updated with the most accurate and latest information. Thank you, YOU! You know who you are!!! I love you.

Fire Update

Below is a map of the forest fire that is threatening Beya and Papa's house. I've erased some of the roads out of privacy. The red area is the fire. The yellow square is our house. Each square in the map is 1 mile. As you can see, it's right about a mile away. It all depends on the wind. The firefighters are amazing, they work around the clock and trust me, they don't do it for the money!!! One of my oldest and closest friends was a firefighter and let me tell you, it's in their blood. They are some of the most heroic people I can think of. So far about 30+ houses have been burned. It could go either way. And again, either way there's nothing we can do about it.
