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.

Beya has been asking me frequently if I believe in God. I talked to her about it the other day and she realized what she had been doing, apologized and said she would back off. She's not preaching to me by ANY stretch of the imagination but she is curious as to what I believe.

Me too.

I look at Asa and I believe in God.

I look at Valentina and I believe in God.

I look at who isn't here......

...... and I don't know.
