Picking Baby Girl's name has been quite a to-do.
But I think we finally have it. Funny, once we picked the middle name, then the first name was much easier. So, I'll begin with the middle name.
Just like with the moment God started working on me about the adoption of Kendi through a bible verse, so it was this time, too. With Kendi, the key word was "Hope", so it was really important for us to use that as her middle name. With Little K, the key word was "Joy". However, as much as I wanted to use it, Joy is also the middle name of one our nieces. We've shared names a few times in this family, so I know it would not have been a big deal to use Joy, but something didn't feel quite right.
Then the *DUH* moment...there have to be names that mean "joy". Yes, duh...
So, I began looking, but didn't have to look far. There it was, & it was perfect.
"The source of a father's joy"
Better yet...my mom's middle name is Gail, which is a form of Abigail.
We've honored our dads through our sons' middle names, so we are so excited to give our sweet little girl a very special middle name...one that God knew all along!
And once we figured that out, the rest just fell into place. So, here are a few of the pictures from my first introduction post. If you remember, those pictures didn't load so well, so I'm reposting thanks to an advocate/friend forwarding them to me. They are the first pictures we saw when we fell in love with our girl.
We'd like to introduce . . .
