Here's our little girl. She is 15 months old. She has cleft lip/palette. She is beautiful and she is ours. Yes, we are about to be parents for the 4th time, and no we are not crazy...we can't wait!
We decided to name her Jolie Elise! Name meanings are very important to us. We chose Jolie, because Karl's mom's middle name was Jo and my mom's middle name is Jo. Jolie means pretty, and Elise means God's promise. We think her name fits her perfectly because she is just beautiful and she is God's promise. We will also keep her Chinese name as part of her middle name. Her Chinese name means Hope that she will be quiet, beautiful, and knowledgeable in the future. Her name definitely has a good meaning...Just like all our other kids' names....
Today when the email came in, my Shek walked into the room and said, "Did we get it (PA)?" When we told him that we had received it, he said, YES!!! with a pump of the arm! Then later he said will you bring me back something from China? I said Yes, a sister...he said can you bring me back a little something else too? I said sure thing!
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. James 1:27
雅 各 書 1:27 (Chinese Union Version (Traditional)
27 在 神 我 們 的 父 面 前 ， 那 清 潔 沒 有 玷 污 的 虔 誠 ， 就 是 看 顧 在 患 難 中 的 孤 兒 寡 婦 ， 並 且 保 守 自 己 不 沾 染 世 俗 。
