"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

She's got a name!

How bad is it that I put this silly bow on my son???

I told the boys we had to practice because girls wear bows.

Owen then began trying to put one on our dog Bella.

This is going to be fun!

The last picture is Cooper smiling. He has the funniest camera smile I have ever seen!

So, Blake and I had picked a name for a girl if we ever had one. We picked it over a year ago.

We wanted to make sure it was right, so we looked again and talked it over last night.

We talked with Owen about it, Cooper really could care less about her name right now.

Owen suggested we call her, "I love you baby sister". Now I am sorry, but that is adorable.

It won't work. But it's the cutest, sweetest, most precious name to come out of a almost 3 year old.

But, despite Owen's suggestion, we've decided we LOVE the name...drumroll please

Sadie Kate Shockley!

We are telling you over our blog because we don't really want to hear if you don't like it. We do!

We can't wait to meet her and we can't wait for you to as well.

Thanks for all of your love and support and sweet emails and prayers.

Please continue to keep Brittanie in your prayers as well.

I am adding a link for those close to us. There is a post about us bonding with Sadie in the first months she's home with us. It was written by another soon to be adoptive mother (they have used a different agency, but ours gives the same guidelines).

Hope you enjoy!


In case she posts again before you get a chance to read, it's titled "Can I hold your baby?"
