On July 4, 2013 at 1am in the morning I received a call from my Godson that our beautiful Alisha (his wife) was in labor. Up until this date I was so worried I was going to miss the birth of Ms. Mia. My vacation was planned 5 months in advance and we were scheduled to leave on 7/5 to New York for the rest of the month. Ms. Mia was originally due on 6/29 and when that didn't happen we were all on pins and needles waiting for her to make her entrance into hearts.
So as you can imagine the call at 1am was just perfect. As I watched the miracle of life enter our world I was filled with mix emotions, love and faith. Twenty Eight years ago I was at the birth of my God Son Richard. I have had the privilege of becoming his God Mother and most importantly watching him grow into a Man, a Husband and now a Father.

Ms. Mia Nevaeh Rubio - 7/4/13 ~ 4:30pm'ish
7/4/13 - 8:00pm
I made it home after the birth of Ms. Mia just in time to celebrate the Fourth of July with my beautiful little fire crackers. Usually the 4th is a big celebration with my family but this year it was just the 4 of us, 1 box of fireworks, 4 boxes of sparklers and lots of love.
My kids didn't seem to miss a beat, they were happy to be together with Peter and I lighting fireworks. Dancing in the spoke listening to patriotic music, being loved and, being free to chase what ever aspires them, free to go where ever they want and free to love all that is around.
The definition of Free is: having liberty or independence.
