BUT we received our LOA on 1/2/14
Have I even shared his name? I don't think so -
We wanted a name with the Da (not the long A but like when your Dr wants you to open wide to look at your throat.)
His Chinese name is YueDa, he is 11 - we want an American name for him, and a Biblical one.
I looked and looked - there are not many names that fit into our requirements above.
Then I saw Dawson - it means Son of David - hmmm now most would say
but your husband's name is Chris.
But all I could think of when I read the meaning was that being the son of "King" David fit him perfectly -
a child who was a son for 2 years (until we assume they figured out something was wrong)
and now our son,
but most importantly a forever son.
And it flows perfectly with our older two.
Then we wanted a nickname for him - our oldest goes by his initials and Brahm could if he wanted, so onto a vowel name.
Ezekial - means God Strengthens - just perfect!!
And his nickname can be Dek (said like Dex) I know you are rolling your eyes by now but our oldest is Tak and EVERYONE calls him that LOL!
So, in just about 3 months Dawson Ezekial (do I add a second middle YueDa)? will be joining us. We are excited and scared to death at the same time. I so know God has this, I know we are following His path and I know that it's my humanness that is worried about the details. So as the new year dawns upon us I am trying more and more to rest in His word, allowing him to navigate this ship and not worry about where it's going and how we are gonna get there!
