Presenting...

So...we think we are 100% sure.  Although, we thought we were 100% sure last week and changed our minds on one of the names. As we rolled them around, one of the names became the obvious "lesser" of the two.  We wanted names that were "twinny" but not confusing.  Names that still had at least a small African flavor.  Names that conveyed meaning...

We are going to keep their Ethiopian names as their middle names and someday, if they wish, they can choose to go by the names given to them by their birthparents.  The G and M stand for their Ethiopian names. 

Here goes...(I don't know why, I feel a little nervous)

Jada G. -Jada Hebrew meaning is He Knew

Adia M.-Adia comes from Africa and means A gift, as in the gift of a life, or a child

Love the names! We will be praying for the birth father and his family in the days ahead, as well as for you and your little girls.

We like the names. I had to call your dad to see how to pronounce Adia. Your mom is carrying their picture around, so we got to see them. Cute, cute, cute!
