Merry Christmas!!!!!!

If I tell you our Christmas was amazing, it would for sure be an understatement. 
This Christmas was more than special, and while thanking the Lord for the birth of Jesus, we were just embracing a new family to our hearts. It was so special and we all had so much fun and heartwarming moments.

My son, Caesar, released the first tracks of his album - Heavens Gates!!!!!

Proud mom mode on!
If you ever need a little injection of inspiration, you should definitely check out my young man Caesar Sant .

Caesar Sant

Yes, I was blessed with the privilege to be his mother, but I cannot miss in the fact that even though I gave birth to him, the Creator made him in a very special way and with a beautiful mission.
Being by his side and watching closely everything this young man has gone through I couldn't be more proud of him and his achievements. Music has been Caesar's first and biggest passion. Music has kept him wanting to recover and get better. Music kept him alive and helped him strive.
Have you checked his music release yet? You definitely should, and if your heart and soul feel like be sure to support him, by purchasing his Hallelujah.
Who inspires you????

Book Review: Evan-Moor Daily Phonics๐Ÿ˜˜

Homeschooling children in different ages group can be challenging, especially when you deal with different degrees of learning speed. The beauty of homeschool, though, is that you are free to adapt and move the learning based on each individual child or group them if it for their best interest.
It can be a little more challenging when English isn't your first language, but I am blessed to say my English skills have been achieved thanks to the decision to be 100% involved in my children's education.

Daily Phonics

Recently I was presented with the opportunity to review the Daily Phonics, by Evan-Moor in exchange for my honest opinion about it and I was very happy to do so๐Ÿ˜˜.
All 3 of my children are very similar in the sense that they do not appreciate being stuck in an activity that is not engaging and that will take some good amount of time to be accomplished. Once we fall on the boredom anything works.
I have been introduced to Evan-Moor a few years ago while helping my oldest child relearn some basics skills. We enjoyed every level of the curriculum we worked on. It hasn't been different with Daily Phonics.
Since my youngest is at the phase of learning the sounds and combinations of letters, I chose to review the Grade 1 book.
Not only I have been able to teach her phonics, but I have been also able to do quickly review with her older siblings. Besides practicing is never too much.


My children really enjoy doing their pages. And at times they will ask to do extra work since they have so much fun.
What I love the most about it is that not only it teaches the concept, but provides enough practice and ends up with testing the skill learned.
The fact that each page refers to a day, and each week focus on one set of letters and phonics is very helpful in mastering it.
Another very special factor to me is that Daily Phonics comes in either printed or ebook version, and it is ideal for families or even classrooms with multiple children. I usually prefer the ebook version, mostly because it gives me the option to reprint a particular day again if there is a need for extra practice. Or if we happen to be on the go, there are many PDF writing apps that allow the children to finish the work in the electronic version, as well.
Reviewing Short Vowel turning into Long vowel sounds

Have you ever tried the Daily Phonics? I would totally recommend this book to anyone homeschooling or not. Actually, just recently I was talking with a friend about it, as she mentioned her son is really struggling with spelling.
Let's keep the conversation in the comments below. And if you have used this amazing book before what did you think of it?

12 years ago....

23 years old me
A day short from the 12th Anniversary of my College graduation and since today was payday, I felt like I should be posting something related.
Yes, most of you might not know but I have a BA in Law from Brazil. I got married a few months after my graduation and left everything behind to start a new phase of my life in a new country. 
I was in love and the decision wasn't so hard, ๐Ÿ˜.
Today, was an early payday for us, and my company made sure to do so since it's Christmas... I started my journey 10 months ago, my main goal was to be able to try the products with my family, since I fell in love with them first, while helping others do so. I can say that I have accomplished it. But shortly and while learning about this opportunity, I realize it is far more than just helping me afford my own personal products while helping others achieve their goals: health or financial, this opportunity has the potential to change my family's life. It gives us the possibility of going forward with our dreams and help others along the way.
Through this journey, I have been learning so much, especially about myself and I have grown far more than I even thought I needed to. 
Today I realized that more than ever this business was an answer to my prayers and that even though I might be far away from my goal, right now, I am on the way to accomplish it. And every day I am inspired and motivated to develop myself along the way to receive my desires with full capacity.
I have vowed to do not let the hardships of the now take my sight from the destination, because now more than ever I know God put it on my way because he knew it was a great option for my family.
And you can go along with me? What are your struggles right now? What has been heavy on your heart?

My baby is 4!!!!!

Mamasant bakes
Belle's cake


Birthday girl's wish was granted. And we, as usual, getting it in the healthy side... For coloring food, as the icing needed to be yellow, we used Turmeric.Hard to believe that my little bugga will be 4 in 38 hours๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.And it is fun to think that even though she was my 3rd child and I really got this birth thing figured out, on this particular one I was deadly scared. My labors are quick and we were collecting her cord blood to bank it. I was terrified about the fact that she could be born at home or on the way to the hospital and we get the Cord blood collection messed up... And later on when I read people's mean comments on my son's documentary I got really mad.No, I didn't conceive her just to save her brother. I conceived her because she was already in my heart and because even though life was tough to think about adding a new member, she is my miracleTo conceive her, I conquered one of my biggest fears: needles. And I broke down the thought that I couldn't get done something that required method and consistency. I was the one precisely giving myself each and every shot, even those evil progesterone ones (TMI - on my button) that needed to go on until I was 10 weeks pregnant๐Ÿ˜.I went to the hospital 2 times before it was Go time. I knew she would come out fast, and she did๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. The second time I went I got so frustrated to be sent home and I told my husband that I would end up having her home... Then the next day (12/7)๐Ÿ˜my contractions started at 12:30pm, and she was born 2:31pm. And we're blessed not only with a beautiful, big and healthy baby, but my doctor at the labor and delivery had so much experience with cord blood collection and got it done perfectly.

Some of my favorites books to learn with my children.

One of the beauties of home- education is that you have the freedom to choose and adapt the learning process, plus
Spell & Writeindividualize it to each child as needed. Almost 4 years ago I was introduced to this serie of workbooks and fell in love. At the time we were working on relearning writing and basic spelling and this books worked very well.

I just love how the subjects are put I a way that keep the child engaged, learning and avoiding boredom. Later I had to get the Daily Fundamentals, and those were even more satisfying because they are set in daily reviews of the main subjects: Language arts, Math and Reading/Comprehension, and it can be used as a morning warn up.
Evan-Moor Daily Fundamentals

Another favorite series of mine are the skill sharpener and Daily Summer. We just finished Grades 1-3 this June/July. And as you might see my collection is growing๐Ÿ˜. If you are struggling with your little ones in any subject and would be interested in give Evan-Moor books a try, I am sure you would  never regret.



Talk to you soon!!!

Nice to meet you!

I have been pushing it back for a while....so I figured it is about time to introduce myself...
Hello to all :)!!!!
And thank you so much for being here. My name is Aline. I am 35 years old and mother of 3 children. I was born in Brazil and after finishing my BA in Law, got married to a Neuroscientist and migrated to the USA. It was a crazy move, I know... By doing that I had agreed to leave everything back and start a new beginning... I had to literally learn a new language and embrace a new culture, while learning how to be a wife and live, for the first time, away from close family and friends. And to add to the midst of a new life adventure, I became a mother within a little over a year forward.
 Life got a little rocky since my son was born and we found out he had a genetic blood disorder, called sickle cell Anemia... Once again I caught myself learning to be something, now a mother, while learning what caring for a child with this disorder meant. It was hard and lonely. I couldn't talk to anyone about it. I had to rely on the internet to learn as much as I could... Oh well... And boy, I did it. At some point, I felt like the crazy lady that would always be expecting a sign of something wrong with my son. Now sometimes I feel sad because it made me never really enjoy his baby phase and always worry too much... He was almost a year old when I became pregnant with our second child. At this point, we knew there was a 25% chance of her having the same disorder, and I went through a lot of mixed emotions... She was a fighter from the beginning. At my first appointment, we found out I had a cyst growing on my right ovary and the first 12 weeks I had to be followed very closely with lots of ultrasounds. Also, the hormonal imbalance made me sick and I ended up losing 5# through this time. She won the battle!!!! 
When I was 36 weeks pregnant, my husband got a new job in another state, so we packed our belongings and moved from RI to NC. Yep, you guessed it right. There we went... My husband driving a big moving truck, tolling our car, beside our toddler and a big O belly preggo lady. 
Less than 2 months later my little girl was born and we found out she also had the disorder.
I was once again loaded with fears... But seeing my children grow and the love and bond they had made my heart full.
Since before having children, we decided that home-education was the path we wanted and as I was, most likely, becoming a full-time stay at home mom, it made all the senses.
When my 2 older children were little all of our time was spent at the living room floor. We would make every single play a way to learn and even when they were having some Baby Einstein DVD time, I was always beside them. So we could interact and they could learn. It amazed me how much they learned and how quickly they absorbed.
When our oldest was 4, he had to be hospitalized for the first time, due to a stroke. And at that time we decided was time to move forward and have our 3rd baby, but this time I was going through an IVF with PGD in order to make sure our child wasn't born with the same disorder as her siblings, and once doing so, we could save the baby's cord blood to give our older children a chance to live Sickle Cell free.
My motivation.My reason.
                             
For so many reasons, and unfortunately, the road towards IVF wasn't a straight one and our son had a second stroke, within 6 months of the first. And while he was at the hospital, I was able to get a referral from my PCP and make an urgent appointment with the Reproductive Medicine Center. I was blessed that at that time, my husband worked for the Medical Center Research, and was already on his Job for 3 years, so we were qualified for medical assistance on this matter. Our IVF journey wasn't so harsh... I conquered all my needles fear and gave myself all the shots. I was so proud of myself for doing that because to tell you a secret... I hate needles๐Ÿ˜‰.
Interesting enough, at the one year mark of my son's second hospitalization, we were at the clinic getting my FET...
My third pregnancy was my hardest one. Not physically, but emotionally. I got the sickest of all 3. And when I was 13 weeks pregnant, my son had a 3rd stroke. Long story short, we lived in the hospital for 58 days, while I was carrying our miracle baby. Life became harder and challenging.
In 2014 we welcomed our sweet and fierce baby girl to this world. Her cord blood was saved for her brother since she is 100% matched with him. She was my biggest and healthier baby. You can learn about my son's journey here.
As I already mentioned maybe more than I can count,๐Ÿ˜, life hasn't been easy, but the last 4 years has been tougher. My husband lost his research job a month after my son left the Rehab, and since then to now has been dedicating his time and knowledge to help our son strive., while trying to still be a husband and a father.
We have been through so much and still, I can't put into words how blessed we are.
Since a year ago our middle child has been granted the opportunity to explore her passion. Our son, despite all the limitations, has been able to strive on his violin talent. Our children have been doing great healthwise. And at the beginning of this year, I was presented with an opportunity to work from home while I am still able to be here for my family.
Being in business has been a learning journey for me, but the possibilities and doors it has the potential to lead us, make it all be worthy. So all I do is I just share for a health/wellness company that offers over 50 awesome products like vitamins, coffee, skin care, energy products, and more! As a representative, I get paid to talk to people about the products and the business! And it can be done through social media or just word of mouth! Basically, the more people you talk to, the more your business grows !!!! Curious about what I am doing???? Click here or the link below the picture.
My First Promotion
A few weeks ago, I was also contacted by one of my favorite publishers, as a home-educator, to became an affiliate with them. The opportunity came just in time, now not only we can enjoy our workbooks as I can share it with my fellow home-educators parents or teachers and help my family financially. If you never hear of Evan-Moor workbooks, you need to check them out!!!! It is a great addition as a cross-curricular school work or even as the main curriculum in your classroom or homeschool. And you don't need to just trust my words, check them out!


Daily Fundamentals... One of my favorite series.

Some other facts about me... I love coffee. I am a crocheter. I listen to music, loud on my ears anytime I am too happy or sad. I am crafty.
I also love some quiet time.
My children are my main reason.
Hope you like my blog, and will come back always.
Let me know about you... Comment where are you from and your favorite things to do!!!

Talk to you soon

My skin secret!!!!!!!

I just have no enough words to express how much I love and am glad to be introduced to this liquid gold, right when I needed it the most.
Aging is something we all go through, whether we like it or not. Gravity and wear will show up no matter what. All we can do is to minimize it, or at least prevent it from taking a toll.
I am on my halfway to 40's, and at the beginning of the year, I had just finished 3 years of exclusively breastfeeding my 3 Rd child. If I put together the whole nursing time, I have done it for a good 6 years๐Ÿ™Œ.
Well after my last round of nursing, I wasn't very sure about the way my breast area looked... My skin was saggy and dry-looking. It started to make me a little out of confidence. Just then I was introduced to this amazing plant-based gel, aka liquid gold, and was very pleasantly surprised by how nice and quickly it changed my skin looks and texture.
Are you kidding me??? The results of this gold gel are without doubts AMAZING!!!!
You don't have to believe me, just check it out:

My breast area looked exactly like this "before" picture

It is a journey... and I am glad I started it!

Sight...8 months ago, when once again this opportunity knocked my door, it somewhat made my heart pulse a little stronger. Even though my mind tried to distract me by letting me know of all the reasons why it wasn't for me, I would feel a different and warm feeling every time I thought about it. Then a deep feeling of why not me? If this opportunity was already changing the lives of so many families, why it wouldn't change mine? And I prayed about it.
I have been a stay at home mother for a decade and we have been doing fine with it. My husband has always had a very demanding research job, but we have managing to do life our way and being deeply involved in our children education and development. But 4 years ago everything changed. One can only imagine the pressure and stress of everything that has been going on in our daily lives. My husband no longer works in research, and have been dedicating his whole time to help our son recover and cultivate his talent, at the same time while juggling to keep our daily life and needs on track. This has been hard and harsh on him. Right now there are so many promises and projects going on, but everything seems so far, and all we can hang on to is Faith.
Then come this opportunity and the possibility of us being able to breathe while moving towards everything else. And this is so real and the feeling of accomplishing it is right in front of us. I am very close to reaching a goal and helping my family with not only extra income but with a $1k bonus. This means so much for us at the current moment.
There are many ways you would be able to help us. You could either be a product tester for one of my products, getting it at my 40% discounted price in exchange for your testimony about it, or refer me to someone who might want to try my amazing products. Or, if you are looking for a way to make an extra money for the holidays, I can teach you how.
Here are just a few of my favorites so far:
If you already love coffee and would love to enjoy one that also helps you lose some extra pounds, I got you covered!!!! This coffee is just delicious, on the Go and I can guarantee you will get addicted. I feel in love with it and was able to shred a good 4# of baby weight in a little more than 2 weeks.

We call those pick me up pixie stick!!!! those KetoEnergy are just insane!!!! I just got a message from one of my Customers telling me she is in aweee... And guess what? Now she can handle late night meeting as fresh as if they were happening early in the morning!!!

3)Is your body crying for a Cleanse?
Well, I got you!!! And those are a 2 days only regiment, you can eat on it and they are white pants approved!!!! Yes, you read it!!! My Cleanse is very gentle and you won't experience the bathroom run madness. Some people might even experience good weight loss after finishing Day 2!

Talk to you soon!!!!

Food Heaven!!!!

Do you love pork fat???
Oh my world๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.
This is one of my children's favorite food. And I am so happy they love it because this makes me remember of growing up. The problem with it is that it is extra delicious friend, but it is kind of dangerous since it keeps popping everywhere... Up until... I found out a recipe to make it on the pressure pan, without the rubber on the cover.
And guess what???
The pork fat comes out as crunchy as you can ever imagine. No mess and no danger of burning yourself - oh well... I always manage to burn myself anyway๐Ÿ˜.
Then the hard part is to make everyone stop to eat it like there is no later or tomorrow.

The recipe is so simple, and I have experimented it with chicken wings and french fries, and let me tell you... It is amazing!!!!
All you need is to place your cube cut and seasoned belly pork fat (or chicken wings, or potatoes) on the pressure pan, put vegetable oil only enough to cover the meat (or whatever is in there:), then cover it with a pan top that fit perfectly the pan, not necessarily the pressure cover, but if you decide on using it, remember to remove the rubber before putting on the pan. 
At first, you will notice a white smoke coming out and this is due to the water content on the meat. Once the smoke disappears or decreases to very small quantity, let it covered for 10-15 minutes and check it. If it is golden brown it is ready to be removed.
I like to place it in a paper towel to remove the extra grease.

And after 7 months....

How that feels???
Well, still surreal to say, but let me tell you... It feels amazing!!!
It has been a journey. And I am so happy and glad I said yes.
No words can express my gratitude to my dear friend,

Michele, for showing me this opportunity and helping me believe I could do it. Oh my๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™. And everything she told me is so true. This is my business but I am not alone on this journey. We do it together as a big O team๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ.
I am so thankful for all of you, who have, so far supported me through this adventure. And hear me when I say this is the beginning.

I am beyond blessed!!!
You can do it, too.
All that you need is to believe and decide to go for it.

Enjoying "me time"

Ballerina shoes๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜.
My baby girl decided she is a ballerina and today I adventured on my sewing machine... My first time sewing shoes๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜.
Lately I have been very intentional with incorporating to my day something that is special to me, as a hobby... And sewing is one of them๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ. Now that it worked out I need to make the other side and maybe an extra pair๐Ÿ’•.

If something makes your heart race...

"If you can see potential in something and it make sense in your ๐Ÿ’“, do it! Push harder, even if it will benefit people that won't thank you for doing it, later. Besides it was important to you and you are not looking for their appreciation, anyway." Pam Sowder

Yes, yes!!!! Yesterday while making sure my children were really on their beds to sleep I was listening to my Monday training... And when our trainer said those words it hit me in the right spot๐Ÿ‘Œ. I remembered me 8 years ago... And those picture are the illustration of what happened. The picture on the top, I was on my 3rd month postpartum after my second baby... It might not seem much, but I was 20# over my normal wait and was feeling sick emotionally and physically. I could better stand on my feet for 5 minutes and my legs would burn. My feet was swelling and red all the times... But being home with 2 little ones under 2 and have no one around to watch them for a little bit made it impossible for me to workout... Well at least I thought.
It was just until I went to see my doctor and had a bone density test done, I was starting to have issues with my right hip. The doctor recommendation? At least walk for 30 min every day. I started going up and down my stairs for 10 rounds, while my babies were playing in the living room, but after a week I got bored... And found out that there were many people putting workout routines for free on YouTube and I could do it at home... The pictures on the bottom are 3-4 months after I started doing it every day. My routines wouldn't be longer than 15 min. Because this was the time that was fitting for me and my life season.
Did I get support? No. For the first 3 months it was hard. Lots of time I did squats holding my baby, because she wanted me.
Right now I am in the same spot. Not about working out, but on my business journey. It has been hard pushing through the lack of understanding  and support from inside, but guess what??? I see the potential of this opportunity, and once I hit the goal, we all will be able to enjoy life as we need and want. I am doing it for me. I am doing it because my children deserve better and more.

How about you???

My new way...

How have I been #coping with "Life" happening?
Well, I am so glad and thankful I got to know this 2 herbal supplements and I need to tell you that I am someone that likes to test wether something is truly working or it is just in my mind.
After awhile I have became very cold and explosive. Most of the times I allow the emotions and feeling take over and I will feel very miserable after all. I have been taking this supplements for awhile now, and I have noticed a dramatic shift... Yes, I do feel it and go through life, still. But it doesn't affect me as baddly as it used to be.
For the first time in 4 years, I was able to rest on the week my son has his monthly transfusions, and even though I went through some crappy days, I didn't feel restless and miserable.. If you are open to give it a try, don't hesitate to click Here or get in touch with me for details. I would love to help you get yours and experience it for yourself.
Until soon,
Aline

Unfortunately, still we are silent....

September is the Sickle Cell Disorder awareness month, but to us also a month that brings the memories of something I wanted to forget... The first time my baby boy (learn more about him here)  was hospitalized due to a stroke๐Ÿ˜ข.
Yes, both my oldest children were born with this invisible, betrayal and deadly disorder, but even though they both have the same type of the disorder, my daughter, so far has been in the blessed side of having only one hospitalization, at 7 months old due to a splenic sequestration, and I am proud to say that, because of all the learning and studies I did trying to understand my children diagnose, I was able to detect and tell the medical team exactly what to look for and saved her life, as they told me after all.
She, so far, has had mild pain crisis, they are not often and usually manageable with Motrin. She has never required narcotics for pain or needed medical attention for it. I pray she stays this way๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™.
My son, on another hand, never experienced anything major other than dactylitis while teething, and those were always taken care with extra hydration at home, he never caught even a cold up until he was 2 years old, and despite his spleen being enlarged since birth, it never bothered him. He was a very energetic and active little peanut... And then at 4 he started having strokes๐Ÿ˜ข.
I pray someday not to far from now there will be a solution to help the many that are fearing every day for the striking of this disorder.

Beauty of home education.

One of the main beauties of home-based education is the freedom to teach your children about different cultures...
I was born and raised traditional Christian, and never wanted it for my children. Not because I have anything against it, I just feel like they have the right to learn and know about everything without my judgement.
And I am glad this is possible, specially thanks to initiative such as the #pjlibrary.
This month is celebrated the #JewishNewYear and the #Sukkot!!! Instead of trying to explain what it means to them and make no sense at all, they got to read beautiful books about it.

Those kind of days.

For as far as I can remember I have always experienced very painful and sad pms days... And I have a sense that as I am getting older it has been getting worse. Oh well, I haven't needed to be taken to the hospital for pain medicine in over a decade, but I credit it to my body getting more pain resistant since I gave birth๐Ÿ˜‰.
After my 3rd child, and since I went through an IVF I feel like I got to know and understand my body a little better. Actually it is safe to say that know I can precisely understand what and when my body is working. And it has been interesting.
Lately I have noticed that not only the pain is a lot worse, but it makes me slow and overwhelmed. But I have been able to deal with it and overcome the non- funcional side of how it makes me feel with a simple little packet of something that is compared to the Vitamin B12 shot... With the big plus being that it is not a shot and I can have it anytime or anywhere I need it. And what is it?๐Ÿ˜‰ ketoEnergy
It is just amazing how it has been helping me on days when I am sure I couldn't do much.
 
So What is it?
Keto Energy is not just for keto! This is for everyone and it is a big deal! It's going to give you all the same benefits as a b12 shot, without the shot๐Ÿ˜Š!!!! It was created with the melt technology so the product is mostly absorbed through your tongue which means it gets into your system so much faster. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Plus it is filled with healthy and natural ingredients such as Ashwaghanda and Turmeric.
Here is just a few highlights about it:
⚡️ Instant energy on the go! 
⚡️ B6 and B12 vitamins
⚡️ Encapsulated caffeine 
⚡️ On-the-go packets
⚡️ Lemon-lime flavor 
⚡️ Melts on your tongue, no water needed! 
⚡️ Fights stress and fatigue
⚡️ Improves mental focus and boosts mood!

No wonder why it has been a life saver for me on those yaky days.
Just let me know in the comments if you would be interested in more info about this amazing product.

Another School year....

Well, I don't know about you all, but I am feeling like time has been flying by way to fast, and I feel so blessed that despite everything we still able to homeschool and I am still able to be 24/7 available for my children and their growth and needs. 
Life has not been easy these last 4-5 years, and especially after all we went through in June-July/2014 plus the afterward of everything, but I need to say that it has been working out and we can't even think to complain, because it would sound ungrateful.
Slowly we are finding what works best for us as a family and trying to incorporate learning and living as a way to go. And we have been so amazed by how accessible things have become. I do have my favorite publisher, and Evan-Moor has become my go-to for pretty much everything. I truly love the way the books are displayed and engaging.
Also, another day we made a trip to the Dollar store and were amazed to find so many good learning material, and for a dollar???? Yes, you read it right.
Since we try our best to do our schooling year round, we didn't take an official summer break, but we have slowed things down. And after all, that goes down with our son's completing another blessed year, now is time to get back at it at full speed.

Time is flying...

My boy is getting so big๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€. How tall he looks here and he is almost Mama's size, as he says...
We are slowly getting back to life flow and experimenting with schedule and routines until figure out what will work best for us.
Also, many friends and family have come to me with questions and wonderings since Lucas announced that we are aiming to take Caesar to India for his transplant.
If you ask me how I feel about it, my answer will be this is not about me, and the only thing I can think of right now is that as long as there is a team of experts with experience enough to run safely his procedure, I shouldn't really mind  were they are.
This is not an easy decision, and I can say for sure it is kind of terrifying to think we are going to a new place, new language, new culture and in a very delicate matter, but I have learned to understand that things will only come true if they are meant to, and if it is to be, all we can do is to evolve and embrace.
As of now we can only work towards it and do what is at our reach. And you, if willing to support us can do it through either helping me promote with my Business or donating to Caesar's Campaign on Facebook. Either way will be truly appreciated by us.
As always, thank you in advance for any help you can give.
Blessings,

Aline

Self Love

"Go and love someone exactly as they are. And then watch how quickly they transform into the greatest, truest version of themselves. When one feels seen and appreciated in their own essence, one is instantly empowered." — Wes Angelozzi,
And all the sudden I realize that I am tired of just being fine...
I am tired of pushing myself and who I am away to be a fit.
I am tired of just being there and doing for.
And when I realized it all I came to the conclusion that maybe I stayed just fine for too long and the break through is not something that will come at easy, but...
There is no coming back. There is no setting down. There is no just accepting and ok.
Because you can do nothing and the nothing be perfect for the ones that value you, just the way you are, and you can do anything and not be enough for those who just need you.

This still hurts...

Sometimes I wish it was just a nightmare... It didn't really happened.
Maybe is just my heart crying for the life the way it used to be...
This is a picture, just one of the many sadness that strike my ๐Ÿ’“. Here I am 19 weeks pregnant, living in a hospital room with my Hero child, that in a blink of hours lost his habilities to do everything he has learned to do since he was 4 months old. My face???
Well, how should I look my son in the eye and tell him to be brave, when I was hurting so much. I wasn't able to answer his questions. I wasn't able to prevent him from being poked and checked...
This is a picture of reality. There is where I am most of the times when he is having a bad day or a terrible meltdown. No one sees it, but there is my place, even though I am not the "perfect" one or the most patience and qualified.
Despite of everything, I feel so blessed because my child can express his feeling with me. He is allowed to be angry and sad. He is allowed to cry and scream if he needs to. He knows I still live him, even when he hurts me out of his frustration. He knows I love him no matter what he is or can do. I am and will sacrifice myself to give him what feels normal. I gave up so much and I don't and won't throw it to his face, because I did and would do it a billion times more.
Because I love him!!!

I am back... with Good News!!!!!

First I wanted to thank my friend, Michele,  for turning me on, and never giving up on me. And Vilka for helping me get it. One of my New year's resolution was to start something on my own, do something that would challenge me enough to grow. I prayed for something that would be as beneficial for me as it would be for my family. I can't wait to go all for it and embrace this journey with everything I can, and a year from now I can look back and tell others how hard it was but it was made possible by working hard. I have joined ItWorks because after researching and reading about their products I fell in love with it. And I believe not only we will benefit from the products as well as the extra income I can bring to my family.
Joining this company means so much to me and will for sure add a lot to my family's life.
I hope and count on you my friends and family to help me accomplish this goal.
I am so excited about it and can't wait to share more with you all.
Please feel free to inbox me if you are curious about my business and want to learn more. 
I would really appreciate your support.
