On the Journey With My Chosen One!

I am sure you might wonder why I call her chosen rather than adopted.... well, adopted is just her physical condition, CHOSEN is what we both are to be a family together! God is so rich in His Blessings, and He has chosen each of us from before the time we were knit in our mother's womb to be a FOREVER family! How BIG is that? How BIG is our God!?! Thank you for following our journey and for praying for us as we wait and continue to grow in the love of God! -- Blessings!

What's In a Name?

So, while I am waiting on a referral, which prayerfully will come REALLY soon, it might be a little while. One of the questions that so many want an answer to, is what will you name your little girl? Well, actually, there has been a lot of thought put into that has gone into her name, but then there came the confirmation from God!

Well, as you can see from the page, I have chosen the name Liliana. Her other name will be the one(s) that she already has. It will be the only thing that she will have that is completely her own! So, we'll see what her complete name will be in a while, when she is chosen!

But, Liliana, let me tell you about that! First of all, I have always wanted to name her after my Grandmother's middle name which is Lillie. My Mom's and my middle names are both Ann, and I wanted to keep some of that as well. But, I wanted part of her name to be Anna after the prophetess in the Bible. She lived her whole life waiting for the Savior to be born, and after so many years of waiting, when Mary and Joseph brought baby Jesus to be dedicated, God made sure,, Anna was the first one to see Jesus! Additionally, I wanted to keep her name in a Spanish form, one that would also be recognized in her own culture. Sooooo... the name "Liliana" was born! Then one day, I was at the bookstore and looking at a baby name book and decided to look up the name Liliana, I found that it meant...."Belonging to God", what a confirmation that was for me! She does belong to God, while He is trusting me with her care and teaching her in the love and admonition of the Lord, she belongs to Him! Who knew that so much could go into a name!?!? Can you imagine what God put into Jesus' name? I do think of that from time to time... it fascinates me!

So, as we wait to find out what the rest of her name will be, please continue to pray, thank you for all of those prayers!!
