Introducing Nicole Ramirez
Hello my name is Nicole and it mean victory of the people, victorious one, and it origin is from Greece.
I am a photographer, author, as well as an artist. This is my first posting here in my blog, and over the next season, i will share from several different subjects so as to encourage you.  One goal I have and intend to accomplish is to share the trials, traumas, and just hard times that i have come through, that i made it this far and you can too.
So, let me start with as i said above....  My name is Nicole. I am adopted and found out as i was raised by my adoptive parents, that my name was given to my by my biological dad. I was born in the 50's, and even though now in the 21st century, when i was growing up there was not one other Nicole i even met, heard of, be it in my life or on television. I never heard the name Nicole anywhere at all.
I was raised by Mr & Mrs Stickler, my adoptive parents, and they adopted another kid, this time a boy, and now i had a brother. We moved ever so much and so i never really got established in a neighborhood, all but for once. 
My dad acquired cancer and died of it when i was 11. We moved back to Pennsylvania, so he could say goodbye to his blood family before he died. After his death we came back to California, and settled in
San Diego County, the home of my moms sister.  We settled in an rural area of the Eastern County, and we stayed in one place, and it was nice to go to one school my entire high school years.
Of course i saw some cute looking guys, and sorta would follow them around. Another guy became aware of me, especially as i started to go to sports events to take pictures. I decided to take photography, for i needed credits to graduate, and that seemed different and maybe fun.  By the end of my junior year, i started dating this guy who was watching me. He graduated that year and 2 years later i then graduated.  He then moved and got his own apartment and i invited myself to move in. Within several months a very good friend of mine, had a dream, and because of the dream, she begged me to watch Billy Graham crusade that weekend on the t.v. (i had gone to his crusades growing up, and watched his crusades lots of times).  So the weekend came and it was December of 1977. I watched the crusade and ended up curled up on the floor crying at the end when the invitation to accept Christ was given. Well that very night, i couldn't go to bed with my boyfriend, i just KNEW it was not good anymore. So i slept in the walk in closet. Within the next week, i moved home with my mom. (she now only had a one bedroom apartment, and my brother had left home).  Within several months my boyfriend whose name was Charles, well he came to invite me out on a date once again, and shared with me he was saved now.  Within 5 months i was engaged, and we got married in June 1979.
I got pregnant nearly immediately and had a son in June of 1980 and named him charles as well. I now called my husband Charlie. The next 20 years were basically 2 more kids, who were boys, and several apartments too.
In 2002 my mom died, and within a year i started looking for my birth mom.  It was (I think) in 2005 that i found my birth dad. I found him for i had always known we had the new paper article in which it was shared the details of my situation..........
Details will be given in the next posting on my blog...........

 Introducing the Artist  
My name is Nicole and my Daddy named me. I treasure this for
Found my dad a few years ago. When an infant I was adopted And cared for by some wonderful parents who could never give birth,But raised a wonderful artist. I was raised well, and have always Loved to play in the dirt and have fun.  I remember when I was in Elementary school; I went out and planted some seeds.  I forgot that I did this and weeks later, I had cucumbers and sunflowers.For years I loved to plant seeds and watch that which would sprout.In High School I became a part of the annual staff and loved Photography as well. My fabulous teacher encouraged me to submit My work to the county fair. Each entry I submitted won a prize,2nd or 3rd place.  I gardened as well in my teenage years.In my early twenties I married and had three sons.I forgot the cameras existed and focused on my family.  After I raised those 3 boys, I started taking pictures again and it was No time before I outgrew that first camera and wanted something With more pixels, more mm and more of most everything I could get.When I go to the park, or walk in our neighborhood,  I usually have Binoculars AND a camera with me.  I take more time walking 2 miles than anyone I know. I see the little orange cosmos there,And a Lincoln sparrow under the pomegranate tree.Then I might see an anise swallowtail fly on past or a Coopers hawk after a black phoebe.        I have found how many people I get to meet when out on those little walks, and that is Very edifying. So as you peek at the pictures displayed,Know you can visit the website and see a plethora of Other images that will certainly delight you.God bless you and have a glorious season!
