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.

Erased And Written And Lost

I have three blog posts half written but each time I get halfway finished with them I have second thoughts about publishing them and I just hit the "save as draft" button.

So here's what has been going on in a nutshell;

Asa's soccer team hasn't lost a game yet. He's also scored in two of the three games.

Valentina lost her first tooth and the tooth fairy not only brought her $5 but luckily Valentina informed us before she went to sleep that apparently the tooth fairy brings a necklace too. That was news to mom and me!

Tomorrow is Asa's birthday. His third birthday without his mom.

Unbelievable.

I've been telling Asa for the past few weeks that his birthday present is his party. "It's expensive to throw a birthday party. Do you know how much your party is going to cost? It's going to be about $300. You might get something small but that's it, think of your party as your present." Yeah. Mom and I went to Target yesterday and I ended up spending $100 on five presents for him. The thing is he's such a great boy that he hasn't even asked me for any birthday gifts. Of course after I picked up the kids yesterday I had to give him one of his presents. It was a new toothbrush but he loved it. Yes, I know, I call it pulling a Jen.

So that is it. There is much, much more but, well, that's it for now.
