Happy Family

It's so hard to believe it, but it's true... it was 2 years ago today that we stood in that sticky hot room at the Civil Affairs office in Changsha China... my arms aching to hold the beautiful baby girl that was now and forever to be my daughter...
When we arrived, this was what it looked like as we walked in... all the nannies holding all those beautiful babies by the window... and all us over-anxious parents, trying to figure out which one belonged to whom!

It was our turn to receive our beautiful little Rachel.  She actually held her arms out to me right away and I never cried & laughed so much at the same time in my life... She was perfect!

She looked so different from the pictures we had received 2 months earlier!
Today, she is still gorgeous... growing beyond belief, and so bright it's frightening! LOL... we could not be happier to have this brilliant shining light in our lives...

Her Nana & Papa can't get enough of her either!!!

Our Story

My photo
We are the proud parents of a beautiful little girl. I have not stopped smiling since the moment they placed her in my arms. We adopted her Sept 2008 and it's been nothing but wonderful! She is the best reason to open my eyes every day! Currently living in SW Florida. I've also become a MAJOR Twilight junkie, so now I'm told I'm a TWI-MOM & I LOVE it!
