Avishai started off her life well. She was beautiful – brown skin, black curly hair, chubby cheeks, full lips, slanted eyes, and weighing a good 11lbs 11ozs. Her father, a former marine, now worked as a psychiatric aid, her mother, a software engineer. Avishai’s father struggled with alcoholism and a cigarette addiction but he was always her hero, watching her while her mother was at work.
Avishai says, “I was a daddy’s girl. He was my best friend and someone that I thought I would be close to forever. He was a good father, filled with love and compassion for his daughter. Sleeping was not my strong suit as a baby, so he would drive me around in his car until I fell asleep. Although I was a baby, I still remember how good I felt and how the sky looked. The purple skies passing away into a midnight blue as the sun was saying, ‘goodbye.’ But who would have thought that the sun’s ‘goodbye’ would be an omen for my life? Who knew the person that I was the closest to would turn into a stranger.”
