Two years ago today we first met Rachel Fu Shen.
Our lives are infinitely richer because of her. So today, on the anniversary of Gotcha Day, I remember the pain, hers and mine, of leaving one world to join another. But I also celebrate the joy that shines through the grief. Rachel is the peice that completes us. And we love her beyond measure. Happy Gotcha Day, sweetie!
This morning Katherine asked me, "Do people who are born here, I mean from their mother's belly? Do they have a Gotcha Day?" I said no, just a birthday. "You mean we get more special days?" I said yes, adopted kids get more special days. Kate was quite pleased! Definitely a plus for adoption in her book!
