It sure didn't look like spring outside, but we had a nice Easter anyway. The kids awoke to find their Easter baskets and eggs hidden by the Easter bunny, then we had a hearty breakfast. Next it was off to church, with Easter dinner at our house afterwards.

Two years ago today my sweet baby Rachel was placed in my arms. I will never forget that moment- the way it felt to finally feel her little body in my arms, and the way she looked scared and yet somehow hopeful at the same time. The whole trip to get her seems almost like a dream to me now, and indeed it was a dream come true.
Rachel has brought so much joy into our family. Even now, two years later, the other kids will sometimes say "I'm so glad we have Rachel". Her sweet, bubbly personality makes us laugh with delight every single day.
Here is a little recap of the last two years with Rachel.
