......AND WE CAN'T SHARE ALL OF IT YET!!!!!.........
WOW! I am amazed at how much EVERYTHING in adoption requires waiting! Uffdah! I SOOOO want to share with you our son's first name, but I can't yet because.......WE ARE OFFICIALLY KEEPING HIS GIVEN NAME AS HIS FIRST NAME!
The name is so special that when both Jeff and I heard it, a sense of amazement and peace overcame us! We always planned to carry on his given name ~ as a second name ~ but immediately upon hearing it, the name went straight to the top of our list! We waited a few days, still considering other names we had previously thought of, but no name seemed to fit as perfectly as K*******.
So, K******* it is!
Our sweet boy will be named............
K***** WILLIAM JEFFREY MARQUEZ!!!!
Wait until I can share the meaning of our sweet son's name with you! It has GOD written all.over.it!!!! But for now, the precious K******* story will have to wait.
I can, however, share with you how we came up with William Jeffrey!
William is for my maternal Grandpa (Clarence William), who was a very special man and leader in our family, as well as a wonderfully dedicated Christian. May you rest in peace, Grandpa ~ and be looking down from heaven with that big huge grin of yours that I still carry with me in my heart.
Jeffrey, of course, is for Daddy. Jeffrey means "Peace" and my husband is THE most peace-filled man I know ~ and I know such peace comes from his solid faith in God. I pray our son carries with him this same God-given peace all the days of his life!
His entire name is FULL of God, love, peace and faithfulness........while also grafting him into both Jeff's and my family! Sweet son, Mommy and Daddy WELCOME you not only into our hearts and immediate family, but into our entire family heritage as well!
WE SO LOVE YOU, BUDDY!!!!
