4 outta 5 !!!

WHOA! It's been a little while since I last updated this thing. I've been thinking I need to work on it but I am rather...well...lazy. If only you all could see my "draft" section of this blog- a whole bunch of unfinished work. Typical Rachel style. I will get to it one day.

In the mean while, I can inform you all of some very exciting news...I found my one and only biological brother! Poor guy is sandwiched in age by his four sisters BUT he doesn't seem to mind.

When I went to Chile, I reunited with two of my sisters...the three of us are pictured above. It was one of those bittersweet feelings because I knew that there were still two of us didnt feel complete. It made me sad because I wanted so bad to meet my brother and other sister however, my mom has been estranged from them for their whole lives and she said she had no way of contacting them. In all reality, for whatever the reason, she doesn't WANT to contact them...they are easily accessable via facebook (gotta love the internet networking).

SOOO, after attempting various spellings of his surname, I hit the jackpot and located by bro! I've been so excited because 4 out of the 5 Sarria children are in contact now. SUCCESS! My brother is also in contact with the one sister that I have never met so chances are, I will know her shortly :)

The only odd thing is that I have been having these weirdo dreams where I picture all 5 of us standing arm in arm for a picture by the Ocean. When I awake, I find myself in my bedroom tens of thousands of miles away and cry uncontrollably :( It BLOWS!

Well regardless...4 outta 5 isn't bad and while being the ONLY sibling in America kinda stinks, I know that even the thinnest of connections is better than being alone.

Yall have a GOOD one.
