His little sister, Sally Grace, arrived in July of 2014.  Rachel and Ryan consider both of their babies to be miracles, as Noah is adopted and Sally was conceived through IVF.  When Rachel is not caring for the littles or picking up the house for the 100th time, she edits for Power of Moms and blogs about motherhood, infertility, adoption, eating disorders, her ridiculously cute children, and the ups and downs of daily life.  Nothing gives her more satisfaction than capturing in words the deepest feelings of her heart.**Thank you, Positive Pathways in Denver, Colorado, for guiding me through my recovery.
