Answers to some of your questions. Here it goes:
Q: Are your daughters’ names really True, Brave, and Soul?
A: Yes, they are indeed. No joke. The first two actually didn’t have a name until after they were born. Brave was home 4 days before she was actually given a name. Here is a quick story on their names…
True is because she is our true miracle. Medically speaking, Ben has a condition that isn’t supposed to allow us to have children. He even had surgery to try and get it fixed, but I was sitting in the doctor’s office with him when we were both told that it didn’t work and that the chances of having children naturally didn’t look good. I cried, but I loved him and a year later we got married. Thus, when we did, we didn’t worry about any birth control, cause well we had the most natural form (or so we thought), but God does miracles today and we were pregnant one month later. Now, we a total of three miracles! Or maybe, Ben was just testing me to see how much I really loved him! Hmm…
Brave’s full name is Brave Noëlle. Brave cause our prayer for her is that she is Brave for the gospel and Noëlle means Christmas, which is Christ. Christ is the gospel. There you have it. Brave choice I know, but we love it. There is also a children’s book called Ruby Lu, Brave and True, so it couldn’t have been more perfect!
Soul, well you know that story already. And yes, the grandparents were highly opposed to both names True and Brave at first, but when Soul came around, they were already used to our naming habits!
