We are still calling her Janie, just changed her full name. I’m sure some of you are still surprised :). Hank and I were talking about her name when we were in Tucson and it dawned on him that nothing legally had been done yet. Kind of like sitting in a hospital room the day your baby is born, the nurse brings you the birth certificate form and you just change your mind. Hank decided that was going to happen. His mother passed away when John David was 2 and had such a heart for missions and orphans. His family had a foster child as Hank was growing up. This is his desire to honor his mother and his sister so it is my desire as well:)
Actually this makes perfect sense if you know us well:) You never know what you’re gonna get with our family!!!
Janie is snoring away in her crib. Poor baby cried for an hour as I tried to get her to sleep last night. She kept calling for her grandmother, that is what she called her foster mother. She would not let me hold her, so I rubbed her back, she tried to move away from me. Just very sad to see her grieve but it is also good to see her do this, and know she was attached to her foster mother. She finally fell asleep when I hummed to her.Her cry is so quiet and sad. I’m sure she will let us comfort her in time…..baby steps!
