Gotcha, Rae!

4 years ago today we met the cutest little 21 month old with a buzz haircut and deliciously chubby legs.
We were excited and nervous.  Little Fu Shen was terrified and furious.  It was a difficult afternoon, but those moments in the civil affairs office in Guiyang, China were when we became a family. 
Many of our pictures of Rachel's first day with us show one or another of us in tears.  Sometimes becoming a family is hard.  But the next day, the day Rae officially was adopted, she looked like this.
And none of us have ever been the same!  Rachel Fu Shen has brought so much sunshine to our lives.
She keeps things lively.
She has firmly insisted that our quiet, introverted selves go out and meet people and make some noise.
And she makes us laugh every single day!
She is such a joy and blessing and I am so glad that she is ours.
