Yep...they're ours

Today is Rachel and Robby’s first anniversary. One year ago today we where giving our little girl away to a guy that we had come to love and accept as our own. It has been a parents dream and pleasure to watch them over the last year, as they have grown closer in all the right ways.

Beverle noted before the wedding that when Robby came to visit Rachel at our house they were happy just to be with each other and did not need to run out and do something to keep themselves occupied. They would hang out with us, watch TV, or go for a walk. They always looked so comfortable together.

Now they are working on school, and trying to set up a budget. They are paying off their credit card debt, and trying to save ten percent of what they make. They are watching their diet and working out together, and like Bev and I, they are each other’s best friend.

We are so thankful for Robby, who has put a happiness in Rachel’s face that both warms our hearts and gives us peace. Of course, Rachel is the most beautiful, precious daughter in the world, and no, I am not partial. I say this with a completely unbiased, objective judgment. Really, just ask her Mother.

Happy Anniversary you two.
