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.

Victor Villasenor


First a few words to explain. Mom's favorite author of all times is Victor Villasenor. His books have touched her very soul. After sissy died mom was unable to read and she is an avid reader. She went months without picking up a book. The first book she read (which she had already read multiple times) was Victor Villasenor's "Rain Of Gold". In short, he is to mom how many people perceive Oprah. Through his many books he has become her hero, idol and spiritual guider. 

It was the thrill of a lifetime to be able to take this picture of the two of them together. 



Not only was mom able to meet him, she felt like the luckiest girl in the world to be able to have him sign three of her books. AND he gave her a hug. Imagine her pure thrill when he asked her to go have a beer with him after the signing.


Laughing and drinking with Victor Villasenor.


There was a group that he invited (and all jumped at the chance) for this once in a lifetime opportunity. As you can see they are all hanging on to his every word.


It made my heart truly happy to see mom truly happy. I know "healing" is a soundbite people like to throw around and it's not true but it really was a life changing moment for Beya.
