Adriana was incredibly proud of her son during his piano recital.

The healing ritual we performed in Bimini seemed silly at first, but it actually worked! It helped us open up and brought us all to tears as we told each other of our wish to let go of the past and the hurt and welcome love and hope instead into our futures. I really enjoyed spending time with all the girls and truly wish they all have their wishes fulfilled. I hope they all find their inner peace and that they know everything is going to be all right.

The whole experience was very humanizing to me and made me realize once more how much family is important to me. In fact, I lost my father a few weeks after the Bimini trip, and that made me feel very sad, very angry, very hurt, and throughout the grieving process I realized that life is so ephemeral -- we should really cherish our time with family and spend quality time with our friends as well. At the end of the day, we are just women, juggling many roles and trying to love and be loved in return. May 2013 bring you all lots of it!
