And She Will Be Called...

This summer I told Nathan that she needed a name. She couldn't just be "little girl" or our daughter from Ethiopia. She needed a name...something we could call out as we prayed through this process.


So onto the important stuff! She will be named...





Kenziah Reigh Lorick




Kenzi will be what we call her most days!
Re is what we called my mother-in-law Maria who passed away in February... we knew if we ever had a little girl that we would want to honor sweet Re's memory with her name. My middle name is Leigh so we thought it would be pretty and kind of neat to spell her middle name like mine! When we finally get to see her and learn more about her I am sure we will include her Ethiopian name as well.

This week I saw an adoption quote that said "You didn't grow under my heart...you grew in it"! That is certainly true of our feelings towards Kenzi baby (as Karter likes to call her:).

Someday I will share about how we came up with her name and what it means.

For now I am continuing to trust that if we will seek God and His righteousness first that He will take care of the details!

YOu can do it with God's help and a little girl is waiting for you!
