Today we had to choose a name for you...
Fornthose of you checking both, this is copied from Facebook. Sorry, I've been trying to post different things, but there just wasn't time today. Aleksandr Joel Davis - that's the name we wrote down for you today. We kept the Russian spelling of your first name as it is part of your heritage. Joel means, "the Lord is God" - Joel 3:25 "I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten — the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm — my great army that I sent among you. 26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed. 27 Then you will know that I am in Israel, that I am the Lord your God, and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed." Your life may have started out less than perfect... And there has and will be some important time lost (as we continue on the course to get you home). However, we know that the Lord is God and He has worked this out amazingly and with great purpose. We can't wait to see what He has in store for your future... And... You'll have your choice of great nicknames... Alex, Alec, Sandr, AJ, Joel... They are all good. Our coordinator told us today that you are very vocal (which we know already... Didn't take long to figure that out). She also said it isn't normal for a 13 month old in a baby house to be walking as well as you are. We can't wait to get you home to really get to know you (although, your little nyet & da - yes & no -fit with the coordinator today did show a lot of what is in store) and welcome you to your new family. Wait until you meet ALL the people who are waiting to meet you and love you! :). First flight for home is at 5am (home time) Saturday (tomorrow). Please pray for safe travels, smooth flights and possibly a quicker flight home from New York (dreading the 22 hour layover there!) Thanks for more prayers. See you all soon!
