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.

Long Time, Finally See

Asa and Joshua got home today! They had been gone for 10 days. They went back East to see Josh's dad and took a side trip to Washington D.C. They left two days after Asa got out of school so I haven't had a "summer vacation day" with Asa yet. It was hard to have him so far away and for so long but they had a great time and we were able to keep in touch via phone calls and texts. Asa has learned how to text which makes me realize how grown up he is.

When I picked them up from the airport this afternoon it was crazy good to see Asa so excited to see us. He was fist pumping, jumping and shouting "YEAH! HI SISSY! HI VALENTINA! I HAVE A PRESENT FOR YOU!" Asa was anxious to see the family room and it did not disappoint him.

Asa is finally home and it's so good to have both the kids together again, just like they should be.
