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.

Since Valentina will be starting school, real school, in the Fall mom said she needs to learn the correct pronunciations of the following words. I don't want to forget how she says them now so I'm documenting.

Ridiculous  - Ree-DICK-lee-us!!!!

Animals  -  Aminals

Food Court  -  Fruit Cork

Synagogue  -  Cinnabog
