The Lord gave us the name “Emma Ann” before we left for Ukraine. When the referral read her given name as “Anasatsia” a form of Ann, we received that as confirmation from God that she was the one. In addition we have felt over the past few days that we were to keep Anastasia as her middle name because of the intense meaning, “Resurrection”- you’ll notice several commenters already posted that.
Emma means- Whole and Complete
Anastasia means- Resurrection
Her name then holds the intense meaning that she will be one who will be made Whole, Completely Resurrected. Emma has what is called “Mycrocepahlia”- I’ll let you do the google search and look it up. We are believing that not only has her life been Resurrected, but that she will be Completely Resurrected- Body, Soul and Spirit! She also has a heart condition but at this point we are told it has not really affected her heart much. Obviously a complete exam is in order. Will you join us in praying for our Emma Anastasia for her complete resurrection. Already she is coming alive. Can you see it?
And just so you didn’t think we forgot about Aiden, because that is simply NOT POSSIBLE. Here’s the boy!
We love you all and are incredibly grateful for your comments and prayers. Honestly, please don’t stop with the comments, they really help and make us feel connected to you all. It means so much to us.
We are currently having lunch and will then go back and visit the kids from 4-6Pm (your time 8-10AM).
