OK OK OK ALREADY!!!!!

Ok I have gotten quite a few impatient comments and emails and I myself can't wait any longer to tell all of you our BIG NEWS!!! First of all it has nothing to do with China....sorry!!!!

So here goes.....I am sure there have been a few of you who have often wondered where our "Seven" kids are that we are always talking about having, and knowing that in all of the pictures you always count 5 , and that you know Franceska would make six, so where is 7?????

DON'T SCROLL DOWN OR YOU WILL RUIN THE SURPRISE!!!!!!!

I will try to be as brief as possible. Frank has another daughter by the name of Kellie Elyse. For various and private reasons he lost contact with her about 18 years ago. As you would think this has caused him alot of heartache thru the years. As well the rest of us. Astrud has prayed about Kellie since she was a little girl. We have always included her in our prayers and she has always been at the top of our Wishlist. Frank had given it all to God a long time ago and in his heart he knew that she would find him one day. WELL that day has come!!!!! Before I go any further I have to give all of the glory to our Father above because without him none of this would have been possible. We not only have gained our actually #5, but we gained an incredibly sweet, and caring SIL , Jon that obviouslyloves Kellie with all of his heart, and another adorable, precious , grandson LIAM!!! And when you get to the last picture of this post you will see what else we are getting in May!!!!

I can't tell you how unbelievably happy we all are. There is going to be alot of getting to know each other time, although they live in Washington, we ARE Family and we will make time to build our relationships!!!! We know we love her and we will wait forever for her to learn to love this , big, loud, crazy, did I say loud , funny, loving, argumentative, LOUD, hard loving family that she has just inherited. To all of our family and friends that thru the years have prayed for this along with us we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. So go now and enjoy the pictures, we are humbled and blessed beyond words.

Count them....1,2,3,4,5,6, and # 7 will be here sooooon!!!!!!!

And FINALLY a FAMILY picture with Kellie! Now instead of two missing links we only have one left and that's Franceska and we KNOW that she will be home soon. And I will list everyone so here goes....back row...DIL Traci, son Craig, DIL Amy, son Christopher, DIL Megan, son Steven, SIL Jon, daughter Kellie, grandson Liam...front row...daughter , Astrud, Papa (Frank, Grandpa Frank), grandson Joshua, Mom (Kristy, Meme), and Chastity...There we are THE RODRIGUEZ FAMILY minus Baby Franceska!!!

Drum rolllllll..... INTRODUCING OUR 2ND GRANDBABY....Liam Manuel Guerrero!!!!


Grandpa Frank with Liam!!! Doesn't that look like a Proud Grandpa!!!



Meme with Liam!!!! Just look at that precious smile!!

Our Boys....See no evil Craig...Speak no evil Steven....and Hear no evil Christopher!!!

Do you think their sisters?????????????? Kellie and Chastity








LOOK!!! Grandson #3 coming in May!!! We are so blessed!!











Josh getting some of Meme's love!!
(ignore Astrud)

P.S. Can someone maybe help me????? You know when you are doing something and you are trying to be extra careful and you end up screwing it all up. Well if you don't...I do because that is the story of my life. Everyday that we have all spent together I got home and all of the pictures of the day to my "Kellies Visit" file, and last night I OVERRODE them, yes I did , I replaced them so there are about 300 pictures, special pictures that I can't retrieve. Are they lost forever, or is there a way I can get them back???? I am so upset and mad at myself I could just scream.!!!!!!

I'm sorry. I know nothing about computers.
I was a victim of date rape in 1968. Lost my virginity and got pregnant. My staunch Catholic familywhisked me off to a home for unwed mothers. Isn't that a quaint name for it? I gave my baby girl up for adoption. I never wanted to but I was a good girl and did what was expected of me. My 3 children always knew they had a sister.We always celebrated her birthday. Several years ago, they talked me into contacting all Iowa adoption agencies to look for her. Soon it was all forgotten. One day I got a phone call from one of the agencies, asking me if I was still interested in being reunited. Duh! We talked on the telephone for hours and found out that we live less than 60 miles apart. We got together and it has been one of the highlights of my life. She was adopted by a great Iowa farm family and works at the hospital in Iowa City. We don't see each other alot-busy schedules- but we do love each other and consider each other best friends. She calls me Mom! She has 2 daughters and they are precious to me, too. They call me Grandma. You will love the getting acquainted. Enjoy! We are what happy stories are made of. You know, you have to suffer a little in order to know true happiness.....

That is so amazing!!! Liam is a dolly - you make such a happy grandma!!! We were re-united after about 20 years with our sister and it was sweet!! Family is family :=)

OH HAPPY DAY!!! I waited 17 years to see my sister again. I prayed and prayed knowing that in God's time I would see her again. I'm so blessed sometimes I don't even believe it. I have the best daddy in the world and he married a woman who's become one of my best friends. Jesus loves me so much and you can see it in the pictures on this blog. God bless us everyone!-Chastity
