Thank you all so much for rejoicing with us as we shared that we have been matched with another little boy in Korea! It really is so humbling and encouraging to have others share in your joy. I’m excited to share that we will call him Leo.
Grant’s middle name is Leonard which was given to him from his father and grandfather who passed away 2 weeks after we first saw our son. Leo was also my grandfather and uncle’s middle name. In the midst of us leaning towards naming our son this, I looked up the meaning to find…
Leo: lion, brave.
If any of you knew the symbolism in our journey with a little fox, then you know the joy I’ve found in God’s humor and kindness in giving us a little lion. My whole life I’ve valued details and having visuals to tie to God’s faithfulness. It is one of my favorite parts of Scripture and it’s just how my heart and my head connect at times. And clearly, the meaning goes much deeper than a mere animal but even at the surface, I’m amazed.
All this to say, Leo’s 1st birthday is this Saturday and consider this an official invitation to his week long fundraising party! 😉🎉
