We have chosen to name our son Isaiah, keeping Eftalem as his middle name.
Early on in this adoption process, the Lord revealed the scripture verse, Isaiah 43:5, to me (you can see it under the header of this blog). "Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and gather you from the west." This verse has been a source of inspiration and strength for us throughout this process. And therefore, we came up with the name Isaiah.
The meaning of Isaiah is "saved by God", which we find very fitting.
