Happy Gotcha Day!!!

Today is our Gotcha Day one year ago today...
We Gotcha, Silas!
We LOVE you very, very, very much and we are so HAPPY you are part of our family. You are a WONDERFUL son and brother!
We are so PROUD of you!!!
This is us seeing Silas for the first time.
Silas' Gotcha Day 2009
Silas' one year Gotcha Day 2010

We had a wonderful day! The girls were busy with activities after school so we just ordered pizza (Silas' favorite) and then we decorated in Ethiopian colors and had cupcakes for dessert.

Silas fell asleep before he could eat his dessert. Poor boy... he left the best part!
It is so hard to believe it's been one year! I can't imagine not having Silas in our lives. He is such a blessing and he has changed us all forever. We are so glad God lead us on this wonderful journey. We love you Silas and we hope you had a wonderful Gotcha Day!


  1. Oh Angie, that was such an incredible, wonderful, life changing day! We are so thankful to have been able to share it with you guys! Love on Silas for us, until we meet again (hoping so hard for this summer!)

  2. Silas looks like he's doing great! Monica and I have enjoyed reminiscing about the trip and our time in Ethiopia. Great memories! Are you guys going to Nashville this summer? We're planning to go. Hopefully we'll see you there.

  3. What a great day!! I just love your family... Happy Gotcha Day!!
