Our names

I love Kelly's blog! She is a funny lady, but most importantly, she is a lady after God's heart. She has a beautiful family too! She is doing something fun today with baby names. I thought I would jump on the wagon and share how we came up with ours.

Jacob Maxwell
Jake is our oldest child. I really had no choice on his first name. Jacob is Sam's middle name and he always wanted to be called Jake. He figured since he never had the chance then his son would. I loved the name so it was no biggie. Maxwell was just something we stumbled upon. My initials are JMB so we thought it would be neat for his initials to match mine. A friend said for us to say the names together a few times and see if they meshed. We really liked the way it sounded.

Summer Grace
Summer Grace is the baby girl that we are adopting in July! We have had many bumps in the road as far as more pregnancies were concerned. Many rough doctors appointment and test outcomes this year. We thought the season had passed for us to have more kids. Once we fully turned everything over to God, He truly showed us His Grace by opening up the door for this baby. We loved the name Summer and it is by God's grace that we will have her. Summer Grace was the perfect name.

God has blessed us with an amazing son and soon to be daughter. Please keep praying for us and the birth mom. I can't even imagine what she is feeling right now. If you would like to help us bring Summer Grace home, please click on the donate button on the side. We are blessed beyond belief with amazing friends that are helping us along the way. Summer Grace has a truly amazing story and she isn't even here yet!
Hugs,
Jessica
