My husband and I met at Chico State in 1997. We were married in beautiful Lake Tahoe on June 30, 2001!
After struggling through many years of infertility, we decided to adopt a little girl from Guatemala. We brought Aviana home in July of 2007.
On June 17, 2009, our lives were forever changed. My stepfather was carrying Aviana across the street, as my Mom followed a few steps back, unfortunately, a car struck them both. Although battered and bruised from head to toe, Gary thankfully is now doing great physically. Aviana was not so fortunate. She suffered a severe traumatic brain injury.
After close to three excruciatingly long months in the hospital, she was able to come home with us. Sadly, her injury left her unable to walk, talk, or eat by mouth.
We have had to pick up the many pieces of our broken family. This blog chronicles our journey as we try to find a way to fit those pieces back together. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will join us on our journey….from that moment!
