This year we are celebrating the Year of the Rat.  Thirteen years ago we were blessed with an exchange student from China.  She has gone back to China a few times for visits with her birth family but she has made us her family here in the United States.  If you are a regular visitor to this blog you know her as Tingting or Jessica, as she now calls herself.  She is our daughter and the mother of my Angel Face.
