I'm pleased to be able to introduce Vicki Dalia this week. She was nominated by one of our readers. She runs an orphanage in Guatemala and is an amazing person. I hope you'll enjoy the interview and getting to know Vicki this week.
KARA: "Tell us about yourself. What makes you an incredible woman?"
VICKI: "My name is Victoria Louise Dalia. I am 61. My hobbies besides family and our projects in Guatemala are music, gardening, sewing and the Gospel. It is hard to think of myself as an incredible woman, so I don't know what to say."
KARA: "You’ve got lots of kids... Describe each of them and tell us one special thing about each one. Also, how is having grandkids different from having your own kids?"

Kids and grandkids are different in that you have no control with grandkids. Your kids are going to raise them the way they see fit, but you can give the the grandkids back or never take them at all if you so decide. I have 18 grandchildren under 6 as of May 22, 2010!
If you are new to our blog, here's how it works... Each day we'll post 2 questions and answers from the interview with Vicki. Come back each day to learn lots about this incredible woman!
