Picture it, it's a dark summer night in Greece, and a young girl about 18 years old, gives birth to a little baby girl, one she kept a secret from her family so to not disgrace their name. She never heard her baby girl cry in fear she wouldn't be able to give her away. So that night a little girl, around 5 pounds, waited to be taken by a loving family. And who was there? Stella was there and she picked up her little bundle of joy; one she tried to conceive herself, but wasn't able to for the past 10 years of her marriage. The joy overcame her; she instantaneously became a mother! She brought her bundle of joy, which she named Sophia after her mother in law, back to the States to become a family with her husband, Paul. And there the journey began. 13 month later a bigger bundle of joy came and they named her Nina (yes I say bigger, because she weighed in at almost 10 pounds! And she remains bigger then her to this day). They were now sisters, a bond so strong, but one started before they were both born. And so The Story brings us to today.
I want to share with you my sissy. My sissy and I have gotten into fights over clothes, never boys, who is right, and who is wrong, and everything else; even to this day. But my sissy is the greatest person in the world! She has one of the biggest hearts I know. She would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. She loves passionately and whole heartedly. She is genuine and always wants the best for others. Whenever I have a problem, sissy always tries to fix it with a positive perspective. She always goes out of her way to make me smile and to make me feel better. When I think I can't do something, she is the first to help me do it! When she hurts, I hurt; When she is overjoyed, I am overjoyed. I couldn't imagine my life without her. She is the best Titi, the best Sissy, the best daughter, and the best mom and wife! I am honored that God chose me to be her sissy. I love you sissy, I just thought I would remind you just how much! "Love love"...(Grace Bennett)
