Our boy has a name

Now, I'm really not trying to be a tease. . . but I'm not going to actually tell you his name in this post, because I want my husband to write about it.  It's a pretty cool story.  I will tell you this:  as unique names go, this one's a winner.  You have NOT heard this name, and you may have trouble pronouncing it at first glance.  But you'll get over it, said the gal whose name is often mispronounced even though it sounds exactly like it looks.  (Hooked on phonics and so on.)  Why?  Because we decided to give our boy a Chinese name.  Not the one he was given by the orphanage.  A new one.  That we chose.  And we think it's terrific! 
Stay tuned. . .

Assuming DH was able to navigate through our fresh dumping of snow (sheesh, enough already) to get to the post office, our assignment packet, along with the mother of all checks, should be on its way to Holt today. 

Still waiting for LOA.  50 days.
