Two years ago this morning my phone rang and it was our social worker calling with our referral. He wouldn't tell us much but that it was a boy and he was born on June 24, our anniversary! It was two days later before we would be able to see his pictures for the first time. It's so hard to believe it's been 2 years. In some ways it seems so much longer because it's hard to remember a time when our sweet boy wasn't here with us. I have no doubt that Lukas was born to be our son. God did more than we ever asked or imagined or dreamed! I thank Him every day for the gift of our son and for the privilege of raising this precious boy for Him.
I’ve been talking to him all day about why today is such a special day. I'm not sure he really understands but he did say “me, mama, daddy” which I thought was sweet. I showed him his picture and told him that was baby Lukas. Of course, he in turn said Baby Jesus. (He connects all babies to Baby Jesus now.)
I really can’t believe it’s been 2 years! I’m amazed at how quickly time has passed and yet the years before Lukas seem like such a long time ago. This little boy has changed us and our family in so many ways and we say all the time how boring life was before him! He is such a joy and our little dream come true!
