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.

Does anyone else feel so incredibly incompetent and inadequate for the life they were given? Is it just me? Does anyone else feel like they are woefully unprepared to live the life they have? Does anyone else feel like they have failed everyone in their life?

Or is it just me?
