drumroll please.... **!
J means "God is gracious" and is our way of honoring DH's Auntie Janet. Grace because we have been captured by God's good grace to us...and we always dreamed of having a little girl we'd call "Gracie". A is to honor both of our mothers (both middle names A) and our dear aunt/uncle/cousins/bro-in-law (long story...) with the last name L. BTW: the name A means something like "grace in the valley" which i think is rather appropriate since my favorite Bible passage is Psalm 23. DH loves to say that her name means "grace upon grace upon grace"...which to him is the summary of the gospel. So, no longer does our daughter, whose face remains mysterious to us, have to be called "our new baby girl". We can call her by name. Let the monogramming begin! Merry Christmas to you all!
