Rebecca Black Finau has not received any gifts yet
Hello there. I'm Rebecca Black Finau. Some of you may know me as the painter, oil paints that is, or just as Jacob's big sister, or maybe, those of you that know my sister might know me as Rachel's twin. Either way, however you know me, you may call me Rebecca, Becca, or Becs (Bex). Whichever floats your boat!
Let's see, where to start on my life? I am a daughter to Billy and Sarah a Black. When Rachel & I were about 14 our mom was in a fatal car accident which she didn't make out of alive. We took it extremely hard, but we both tried to push it away in order to be a secondary mother-figure to our little brother, Jacob.
Unable to take the pain of the Reservation and live there without my mother, I moved away to finish school. Around the time I was getting out of high school and graduating, I met a guy named Solomon Finau or Leo for short. He was tall with dark skin and very handsome. I fell in love with him instantly. Right after graduation, I was offered an art scholarship, but I declined it. Soon after I turned 18 I was Mr. and Mrs. Solomon Finau.
After the wedding, I followed him to Hawaii where he was born and raised to follow his dream of being a professional surfer. We traveled all over for all kinds of surfing competitions. I continued to stay in my place on the sand and watch him. I love watching him; whenever he surfs, it's almost as if he's the King of the Sea. [Grins]
After a while of traveling, I was called back home because I missed my family too much. My dad, Billy got remarried and Leo and I are finally settling down in the Reservation. After we settled back home, Leo and I found out I was expecting a baby girl. She was born on Mother's Day, 2015. Her name is Aliikai. I never thought I could love anyone as much as her. She enjoys painting with me at my studio and I am quite a proud mother.
Now we live in La Push Washington with my father, Billy, his new wife & my step-mother, Tiffany, Rachel and her husband Paul, and Jacob and his wife, Renessmee.
So, that's my life. Who knows what could happen next. Guess you'll have to wait and see, huh? [Winks]
My beautiful babygirl, Aliikai.
I can't believe she is 2 days short of 3 months old. It feels like just yesterday she was born.
I feel like I never get sleep anymore, but I honestly wouldn't have it any other way right now. For not even knowing if I would be a good mother and not sure I even wanted a child, I can't believe I ever thought that. Yes, I still get scared that I am not doing everything I can and should for her, or that something is missing from her life that she needs, but whenever I express that to…Continue

The pain was the worst pain I have ever felt in the world. It was like my insides were dying, I never thought it would be so intense. I squeezed Solomon's hand tightly as my contractions got closer and closer together, waiting for Dr. Cullen to get me to the operating room for a c-section. Laying there, staring at Leo, I got more and more scared and anxious. What if she wasn't healthy, or breathing? What if I did something wrong through the pregnancy? Then the horrible questions like, What…Continue

Tiffany and Rachel insisted that I go to the ER during our Christmas shopping in Seattle, Washington. I had been getting sick to my stomach for the past weeks and I knew they were worried; it was a good thing Leo was in Hawaii at a surfing conference so he would not be worried too.
I am not a fan of hospitals, at all. They remind me of death, of my mother. As I sat in the exam room, waiting for my test results to be delivered by Doctor Edward Cullen, I held Rachel's hand…Continue

After his final surfing competition, Solomon finished first. I'm was so proud of him, but I couldn't push away that void in my heart for not having my family in my life for almost 12 years. Just imagine that, missing all the marriages, births, deaths, birthdays...
That night we went home and I ended up crying…
