The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

Long Time Friends

This week was such a fun week for us. We got a visit from family and we got to meet up with some very good friends!

First, Thursday Keira got to experience the Del Mar Fair. Oh wait..I think that it's called The San Diego County Fair now. They have a Kiddiezone where there are alot of rides and things for much smaller children. We ran into Terri, Rob and their children Analyn and Raelyn. The kids are getting so big. It's always great to see them and Terri and I caught up a little on the going on's with work. After that, Keira got to ride a pony for the first time. She had a great time and was laughing and petting the pony saying hi the whole time. Her pony was walking a little slow, so the pony behind her kept biting her on the butt!

On Friday, we got to meet up with the Cuizon Family (Arjay, Dawn and Chloe) at Sea World! Arjay(or Rod) and I were joined at the hip as kids all the way up to when we parted ways in college. We always remained friends, but lost contact for quite some time. It's always so great to see him because even after long periods of time pass, it's still like old times laughing and remembering funny things from long ago. I remember whenever he would come to visit the house when we were kids, my mom would always end up putting him to work cleaning the pool or helping her pull weeds in the garden. Very funny! I have so many funny memories of us singing and rockin' out in my old truck on the way to school and hilarious things that we said and did as kids. I still remember it all like it was yesterday and now here we are with our children. We made a promise to each other that we would make sure that our kids grew up together and that is a promise that will definitely be kept! Hopefully they don't give us headaches when we are older with all sorts of crazy things that they get into together! I didn't get a chance to take any pictures, so here is a picture that he took as well as Arjay's blog where he has posted a couple of pictures! (

Today, we got to meet up with my friends Anjela and Terri as well as Terri's daughter Romisha. I first met them back in the old days of when I used to work doing and selling cosmetics. It's so hard to believe that I first met Romisha when she was not much older than Keira and now she just graduated from High School! Wow how time flies! She is now a beautiful young lady that is on her way to nursing school. She was so good with Keira and she just loved playing with her.

Here are some pictures of Keira at the fair as well as having lunch today with Terri, Misha and Anjela.
