3 Year Gotcha Day Anniversary

It’s hard to believe that today marks 3 years since Troy and I had our lives forever changed for the better.  Three years ago today, we held our son, Silas Abrham Lucht, for the first time and we were in LOVE!  Silas has brought more joy, entertainment, and love to our lives than we could have ever imagined.  I praise God each day that adoption was His Plan A for our family because I can’t imagine anything more perfect!   Below is a short video that I took of Silas at breakfast this morning.  You never know what he is going to say, but I thought his answer to my last question was pretty cute! He has lots of love to go around these days:)


Tonight, we got to celebrate Silas’ Gotcha Day anniversary with Lucy Lane and her family.  Lucy Lane and Silas were at Hannah’s Hope together,and they share the same Gotcha Day.  Also, Lucy Lane’s family lives in our area so we love that we are able to get them together relatively often.  I love the bond the two of them have, and I am grateful they will get to grow up together!  I captured a few pictures below from the celebration at Lucy Lane’s house.

This picture cracks me up.  Silas was doing his fake smile for the first piece of cake, and Lucy was not smiling on purpose.

They each got a turn blowing out the #3 candle.

Finally,Troy managed to capture a sweet picture of the two them playing together.  I can’t wait to see what God has planned for each of their lives. We were so blessed to celebrate this day with great friends and fellowship, and we are so thankful God chose us to be the parents of our son.  Happy Gotcha Day Silas!  We love you more than you will ever know!

He predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—Ephesians 1:5
