We have been looking at name books trying to come up with "american" names to go with the Ethiopian names that the boys have (not sharing what those are yet...we have to pass court before those details come out online).
There were lots of names that we liked but I am not sure if the boys "look" like those names to me. It seems kind of odd to pick a name after you see a picture. Since we didn't know if we were going for boys or girls or one or two...it was all up in the air. I wonder if anyone one else has had the same problem? When we talk about the boys, we refer to them with their given names. When we pray for them, we use those names. I have started to pray that God would really lead and guide us as we decide on names for the boys. I feel like there is a lot to a name and we want to make a good decision. Our plan is to keep their given names as their middle names.
So for now...they are still my sweet peas.
Dear Sweet Peas,
We are praying that God really guides us as we decide on American names that help you fit into our family. This week we put your picture in a frame and put it up in the house. We put the pictures up in the girls rooms too and we greet you each time we walk in the room.
