The year of Jubilee

We have decided on our sweet girl's name.  One of the things that drew "L" to our family was 'how happy we looked'.  She kept saying, "They look so happy...just look at the kids...they are so happy."  There is so much more to share but that will come later.  We immediately knew that our girl's named needed to reflect joy and happiness.


Websters definition of our girl's name is: A time of great rejoicing. A season of great public joy and festivity.

The old testament describes her 'name' as a time of joyful celebration...of the trumpets being sounded!!

Our sweet girl will be named...

JUBILEE

and we will use her birthmother's name as her middle name.

Our precious Jubilee, we are eagerly awaiting your arrival and are celebrating that you will soon be in our arms. You are an amazing gift and we can't wait until you are here. The trumpets are sounding...there is great public joy & we are celebrating you. We love you sweet one!

I thought for sure it would be Kelly, but Jubilee is a much better choice! :) That is such a beautiful name and the meaning is precious. What a joyful addition she will be to your family. Can't wait to see pictures after her arrival.
