What's In a Name?

So did you all get to see those amazing videos of my sweet Dima?  I contacted the family that took the videos and they promptly responded with their excitement that we are working on bringing Dima home.  Eric and I are so grateful to the family for their openness with us about Dima and Baby House 18!  We also rejoice that their precious little one has found such a fantastic forever family and now gets to live in a beautiful country- Italy!

As many of you know, however, we had planned on changing Dima's name to Daniel David.  We agonized over choosing the name and everything!  After seeing the videos, however, and watching him respond to the name Dima, Eric and I have decided to keep his given names (first and middle).  Dima is not his full name and I cannot share that until he is legally ours, but Dima is his REAL nickname that he knows and loves.  He just looks like a Dima to me, too.  So we are pleased to share that with you all.

In the meantime, our Kindle giveaway is still going strong.  We are over halfway to our goal!  Thank you to those of you that have participated so far.  Even if you cannot donate, would you please at least pass our giveaway along to your friends?  Not only do we want to raise the money, but we are also hoping that a family that is considering adoption would choose one of the precious Reece's Rainbow kids.  Thank you!

I will now leave you with the latest pictures that I have received of our Dima.  The woman that you will see in the pictures is Raffaella and the man is her husband, Luca.  They adopted sweet Anja:)  Thank you Raffaella, Luca, and Anja for the pictures and videos!!!  And can you see how loving Dima is??  Oh how he needs his Mama and Papa!!!!!
