We have chosen to give him the American name, Shepard. The name Shepard means - "A Gentle Leader". The Lord has been such a Gentle Leader to us during this whole process of leading us to adoption again and through this adoption. We also believe it is a very good declaration over our son for his future!!
We will keep his Chinese name as his middle name. We can't post it here on a public blog. But we feel since he is 5 years old it will be important to keep his Chinese name as well as for him to have an American one! :) We're not sure if we will give him another middle name to go with his Chinese one or not...but for now...he is our little Shepard boy!! :) Next...we will be working on a care package to send to him!! We can't wait to send him some special things from us!!
What a wonderful Christmas present to receive today!! We could not WAIT to share with you all!! Thank you for your prayers and support in helping us give this precious little boy a forever family. What a blessing...for all of us!!! Praying you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!!
