What's in a name? Mark and I like the meaning behind names. It's important when you are naming your children. It's also about heritage, what gets passed down through family generations.
People have been wondering about changing Andrey's name. He asked us what we thought, we asked him what he liked and it was unanimous....we all liked the name Andrew because it is close to Andrey. He likes it! He's never had a daddy, so being named after Mark for a middle name was a bonus for Andrew!
He sent us a text last night that said "Mickschls are the best forever!" He has a family. That's what is important to Andrew. Someone wants him. They want him for a son, brother, grandson and nephew. When the judge read the court's notes, it said that no one ever visited Andrey in the orphanage and no Ukrainian wanted to adopt him. He sat there with his head down looking at the floor. How must he feel? But now there is a family who wants him! Who love him! I'm so thankful to the Lord for this amazing boy! Thank you, Jesus, for letting us be a part of Andrew's life!
