After a few days of pondering and praying, we have decided upon a new name for Dima. At this point in time we do not have his given name, but regardless, we felt that we wanted to name him with a name that meant something special.
Daniel, because of a verse Eric read. Daniel 1:4: young men, without any physical defect, handsome, showing aptitude for every kind of learning, well informed, quick to understand, and qualified to serve in the king's palace...
You see, in Daniel's country, he has been deemed "defective". But in our eyes and in God's Daniel is perfect, just the way that God made him. And not to mention super cute/handsome!!
The middle name, David, is after Eric's father. Eric's father has been a wonderful "Pa" to our boys and loves his boys so very much.
So there you have it. Dima is now known as Daniel!
Also, please keep our family in prayer. We have been undergoing some serious spiritual attack this past week and could really use some prayer.
