Five years ago today, we held our darling daughter for the first time. What a ride it's been!
Thank you, Lord, for infertility and the grace You have shown to us by the blessings of learning how to parent this sweet child. Please, continue our journey with unending mercy and let us be the parents You have called us to be. All to your glory.

Wasn't she just the CUTEST CHUNK?! This is actually on the second day we had our girl.
Though Rainbow Brite's actual Gotcha Day is today, we celebrated yesterday so we could leisurely enjoy our time and not rush after school and work. She chose to eat here:
RB's nickname from the nannies in China is Cha-Cha. Believe it or not, that's the name of the frog, too! LOL!
We celebrated with a Volcano, sparkler and all!
RB decided that she wanted to adopt a panda from Build-A-Bear and name her "Sunshine". Every girl-panda must have a special bath before getting her lovely wardrobe, right? So cute!!
I just LOVE the "Dressing Room" for the little stuffies to try on their outfits! Too cute! Sunshine ended up with a dah-ling little red and white halter dress number as well as a Tinkerbell outfit, too! Oh--I could go slap-crazy in that place! LOL!
I can't believe that we have been parents of this amazing little girl for FIVE years now! What a blessing that I never could have imagined!!!
