Rachel Fu Shen's referral was long-awaited and unexpected. It was also the happiest surprise of our lives. I remember studying that sweet face and wondering what this little girl was like. Back then, we had no idea of who she was. We didn't know that, as a friend described it, "Rachel didn't slip into your life, she exploded!" That's about right. We didn't know then how much energy and excitement she would bring to us. Or laughter - lots and lots of laughter. We didn't know that our days of sleeping in were pretty much over. Or that she would love kitties and the color pink so much (it makes her referral outfit even more fitting!). Or that she would shower us with hugs and kisses and "I love lou" dozens of times a day. We didn't know how amazing she was. We didn't know that she would be perfect for us. But we hoped. And she is. Happy Referral Day, Rachel!
