Meet The Girls! UPDATED!

And here are their names (I think ;-)

I have an issue with names...

I love so many of them and often second guess myself...

But I think names are important!

It's part of the bonding experience for me!

the girls
with their 

Mia Christine
Anhui Province!
Mia is 10.5 years old and will be 11 when we bring her home!

Melissa Faith
Guangxi Province!
Melissa is 6.5 years old and will be 7 when we bring her home!

And last but not least!

Madeline Mary
 Guangdong Province!
Madeline is 5.5 years old and will be 6 when we bring her home from China!

All the girls are sayin 
"Please to meet you!"

How do I know that?
Well, because I'm their Momma!

Be still my heart!
We are on our knees in thankfulness to our Dear Lord!



I will be in China for a very long time!

Prayin you'll be there with me!

(In other words, commenting words of encouragement on my blog and praying for us!)

Okay on a side note-
 I am not 100% sure of Melissa's middle name...hmmmm...
So let me know your thoughts!
Melissa Faith
Melissa Ann
Melissa ???

Love the names! <3 Such precious little ones God has blessed you with! We will be moving in China in September. If there is ANYTHING we can do for you while you are there please let me know! Translating, helping with the girls, any shopping, praying etc...! We will be in Beijing but would be willing to travel!

Praying God's blessings upon you as you prepare for three more little souls!

In Christ,

Since Mia has my name (for the middle) and Melissa has my daughter's name (for the middle) I think you are doing just you need a Hope or a Jubilee?

kippi said...

I love all the options. Faith, because I believe that is what has brought you this far, but the others are great names too. Im sure whatever you decide will be great.
Keep up the great work! We will surely be praying for you when you make that trip and for all the littles that wait for you back home.

Eileen said...

I think they're all beautiful names for beautiful girls! I've always liked the name Melissa and it's one you don't hear often anymore....and I think she looks like a Melissa!

mary said...

Yipee!!!! I am so happy, finally a little Mary........
And I really like Melissa Faith!!!!! You are doing a great job with all the names, and I will definitely be praying for all of you as you continue to add little ones to your wonderful family!!!!! I may make a trip to Minnesota to visit a friend and would love to one day meet all of you. Love your dear, sweet family!!!!!

David and Janet Hurley said...

Wow--I didn't realize there were 3!! I think they all look just like their names=)

Shelby said...

Melissa Faith is BEAUTIFUL! But I also like Melissa Joy (if you don't already have a daughter with Joy as a middle name!) The girls are gorgeous!! The 3 M's! Mia, Melissa, and Madeline! So cute! I'm excited and praying!!

Acceptance with Joy said...

Melissa Faith is lovely.

I have a kiddo with a middle name of Faith. We have a Joy, Hope, Faith, and Grace for middle names....

Laura L. said...

How did I miss the memo that there are THREE? Oh my! I did not know, so congratulations!! They are all so lovely and will be joining a lovely family. :)

I like Melissa Faith too, but you could always do Melissa Jean. :D :D

Sammy said...

I'm not Catholic, but you're right? How about a good Catholic name like Clair? His daughter was Mary Clare Scalia. She doesn't use Scalia now.

Sammy said...

Oops.. I'm talking about Justice Scalia.
