Name Change

Most of you know this by now, but we wanted to put this in the blog as a reminder of the reasoning and process we went through regarding our little guy's name.

After about a month of his life, we changed Braylon's name to Nathan. This was a tough decision for us, but there are 2 very good reasons. First, if he has challenges with speech, he may not be able to pronounce Braylon clearly and since many have not heard the name, they may end up coming up with something else. You can imagine the frustration this could cause. The second, and just as important, reason is that we feel we need a name with meaning. Nathan means, "Gift from God". We want our son to know that is how we view him and we also need to be reminded in the challenging times ahead that he is our Gift.
