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.

No test results until Tuesday. I feel very conflicted about this. On one hand it's horrible not knowing. On the other hand if it's bad news then I want to revel in these last few days before the hammer drops. I guess I've decided to just try to ignore it. If it turns out to be nothing then I won't have wasted any time worrying about something that wasn't there and if it IS something then I'll have plenty of time to worry.

So I hope everyone has a lovely weekend. Remember your lost loved ones.

I know I do.
