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.

Age

I do not take aging for granted. My sister didn't make it to 41. I am acutely aware of what a gift it is to grow older as so many wonderful, amazing people didn't get that chance.

That said, I never feel older than I do on Sunday evenings. Why, you ask? Because that is when "60 Minutes" is on. I can remember being a kid and begging my parents to let me watch "Punky Brewster". No go. The reason? They wanted to watch "60 Minutes". Now when I see it pop up on my cable guide I get excited to see what stories they are going to tell. I get a chunk of my news information from that tick, tick, tick show. Most of the time I even record it to make sure if I'm busy I won't miss it.

Yes, I never feel old until Sunday evenings.
