La Familia Sanchez

Here is a photo of Hector's side of the family when we went to visit them in Mexico a couple months after Joaquin was born. This was Hector's parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary! It was at this amazing reunion that we announced Joaquin's diagnosis and where I was inspired to write the entry for Gifts 2. You can read about what happened in Mexico by picking up a copy of the book. Our chapter is titled "Joaquin & Andres."

Hector's family is really lovely. He is the youngest of 7 children so when we all get together it's a pretty big party! This photo is of his immediate family only (only one nephew is missing from the photo). Everone is married and has at least one child. I think we have a total of 16 nieces and nephews and 14 of those are BOYS!! We look forward to seeing some of his family this Christmas and New Year's when we go to Playa del Carmen. It's going to be so much fun!


  1. Look at all those handsome men! What a special picture :)

  2. Wow! that's a crowd, must be a complete blast to all be together. Gotta get my book!

  3. Jennifer, what a great looking family! BUT WOW...look at you from then to now. Not that you didn't look good then, but you're a total hottie now :)

    Man...I must work harder!

  4. Hector, Jennifer
    You definately have 2 beautiful families! You are truly blessed.
    The pictures of Hector's family and Jenifer's family are priceless.
    (Oh, and by the way, can I go to Playa Del Carmen with you?) Sounds like fun!!!
    Good work, all of you!

  5. Wow! Now, that's a big family! Do most of his siblings still live in Mexico?
