Hi everyone! It's been a little while since I have updated but that is always a good sign!:) things have been "normal" for the most part. Dariana is back to being a 16 year old girl going to school and hanging out with her friends. I miss being with her. We were with each other every single day this past year and although I miss that closeness I would definitely rather see her healthy and with friends. It has gotten any easier it seems to be erring harder as time goes on. I just pray that things stay this way and she continues on to reach most or all of her goals. I have started school and it is a lot of work but will be worth it when I finally become a nurse and can be there for all these children fighting. A lot of the nurses down at Columbia really helped Dariana through some rough days and I can't wait to pay it forward and I can thank my daughter mostly for showing me to never give up, not on life, not on your dreams, not on anything! My inspiration, my hero. Hope, Faith and Encouragement!
