Looking Through the Eyes of an Unseen Child is almost here!!!!

Okay guys....I've received so many e-mails inviting me to speak about the book! I am soooo excited that I can hardly sit still! The book comes out in just 2 weeks!!!! And this seems to be the longest 2 weeks of my life :p I can't wait until those who have ordered my book have it in there hands!!! I feel like I could stand on a mountain and yell to a nation that there is hope and healing through the words written throughout these pages! Tears come to my eyes as I realize it is finished and I have nothing to be ashamed of!! I will now not only stand up and speak for me, but for all the children and adults who are victims of abuse!!! As I write, I see all the faces of the children who are waiting for you all to read the words that they have kept hidden in their hearts. Please don't think that if you buy this book it is for just is for all the children who have been unseen for so long...sitting in the shadows of life....waiting for someone to see them! I am asking you to order a book...if not for it for a loved one or a friend....
As I sat talking to my brother last night I realized that from this time forward we will no longer live as strangers...but, now (after over 30 years) we will live as brother and sister! If this book brought us together after all these years, imagine what it can do for so many more lost and broken families!!!
My younger brother, Sara and I are already getting prepared for the next year. We have a very busy 6 months ahead of us. We have meetings this week and next with organizations and sponsors. Then the speaking begins and book signings. To slow things down a bit my family and I leave for New York City August 7th through the 14th. I can't wait to see my in laws!!! They live in Queens.
While I am there I will be meeting with some women from NAFE. NAFE stands for National Association For Female Executives. It is an awesome organization and a honor to be asked to speak with some of the women who make NAFE so successful. Go to their site: This is a great way to network ladies!!
Also, while I am in NYC I have been given the invitation to tour HBO studio's. I have always wondered how HBO works....I guess I will find out in just a few weeks. I look forward to getting to know the nice woman who invited me :) Thanks Aidah! She contacted me through the program "Linkin". She has worked with HBO for 10 years and from our phone conversation and e-mails she has a heart full of compassion for the unseen children.
Last week my brother, Sara and I met with the wonderful women from "" I gave the Marketing Director the book after the meeting and she called me a couple of days later letting me know how much it has changed her life. Also, she said, "We definitely need to buy stock in Kleenex!" lol Be sure and check out their site: Especially this fall because I will be the woman of the month :o)
This fall I will be flying to LA for a television (& radio) interview by "An Empowered Woman, Inc."
I look forward to traveling to the west coast and walking along the beach :))) God is an awesome God! It seems like my world is opening up for the first time in so many years! Please go to and hear the stories from some of the women who have over come some amazing obstacle's and have become successful.
Okay...My younger brother wanted me to tell you that I have been asked to speak on the Carnival Cruise Feb. 12th for four nights and five days. The Cruise is to Mexico. I was invited by the Women's Business Link Check out their site: Husbands and significant others are also invited.....
I was going to wait until I had an itinerary put on my site...but, I couldn't wait! I am counting the days until we go because this will be the first time my husband and I have had alone time together (without kids) in over twenty years! I think it is awesome that it will be Valentines week!!!
My kids want to watch a movie, so it is time to say goodbye :)
Thank you all for your prayers and always standing by my side through the toughest of times. So many of you have never even met me in person....but, some where deep inside I know that it won't be long before we see each other face to face :))) I will be scheduling book signings soon!!!
God bless!

My baby brother is here!!!!!

Hi Everyone!
It has been so crazy here this summer! I have met so many people and have had the opportunity to share my story with them! I am already being scheduled for speaking. I am also scheduled to be interviewed (both tv & radio) in LA & NYC. I will also be speaking on a cruise on Feb. 12th 2008! My husband was so happy to hear that he could travel with me on a cruise! It will be our first vacation together alone in 15 years!
I caught up with Susie McEntire Luchsinger 2 weeks ago in Brush Colorado. It was a couple of hours before her concert. After all the e-mails over the last 2 years it was nice to finally sit and chat with her. Her new songs are so inspiring that I can't wait for her new cd!!! Once again people, go to her site
Speaking of my little brother....I don't think I had a chance to tell you all he is here in Denver and is wanting to get involved in raising money for safe houses for children. We finally are together after 30 years!!!! I was so afraid to meet him for the first time. All I kept thinking was, "Does he still have blond hair? Oh God! Please don't let me cry! Lord help me recognize my baby brother and not make a fool out of myself by running up to some random person!" It was 1:00 am when we finally found each other and yes! I cried like a baby as he held me!!! I couldn't believe my once baby brother was much taller than me!!! I know the next question you are all wondering is, "Has he read the book?" He has read the book and is ready to hit the road to market it. I leave for NYC on August 8, and from there I will be going to LA to do a Television/Radio interview on November 14th-16th! God is so good! I have been sick and have had no time to set up appointments and God is making sure that I know He is right by my side guiding me each step of the way. Each time I speak, I feel Him standing beside me! I am surprised with the response people are having....including my own family! I no longer feel like I am all alone telling my story....when I go to write or answer the e-mails it is so reassuring to know that my younger brother is not afraid to stand with me and speak so that unseen children will be seen. I have been trying to upload a picture of my younger brother, but, blogger is not working. I will try again soon :)
God bless,
Diana Joy
