Nana's Family

About me

Hafa Adai. Hafa Adai is a greeting we say in our language in Guam. It means “Hi or Hello”. We say it mostly to people we know. I am a wife to my childhood sweetheart, a mom of 2 boys, well– men now and a Nana to 3 very smart and bright grandchildren. I come from a family of 9 siblings (me included in that number). All still living and well over the ages of 50 years. They with their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. We are a very close knit culture and a very close knit family no matter how far and away they are. The house we grew up in, is still standing and still occupied by a family member. So we always know that when we decide to fly home, it is always there for us to go to. And it sure brings back memories. The most beautiful thing about Guam is that even if businesses change or is added to the landscape, the majority of the villages is still the same. Guam is a U.S. Territory and there is a U.S. military base there and the people of Guam love that, as they get access to the commissary or Base Exchange if they are military, active or retired. Guam is a beautiful place to visit. Plush green, surrounded by the Pacific ocean, rains like mad and the people are so friendly. But don’t take my word for it.
