Happy Birthday, Rachel!
Today we celebrate 10 years of Rachel's life, knowing we are not alone in savouring her smile and sharing the struggles that come with her needs. Today is a sweet day for our Rachel as she celebrates ten years of life. Ten years of smiling, laughing, and tolerating the tough stuff. We love you, Ray-Ray... our little sunshine.

Here are two videos that paint a bit of a picture of the journey we have been on since 2006. The first was made shortly after Rachel's birth ten years ago. The second was made last fall, a couple months after Rachel began at Beacon Christian School in the grade four class.
