Jillian Snow: Jim's grandparents surname has snow (Snoe) as part of it. Also, we love Snow Wu, the founder of our adoption agency. It was the first name we settled on and I think it is still Jim's favorite. I was unsure of how it sounded with our last name.
Lauren Marie: My grandmothers name was Lenore Marie. The baby would have the same initials as my grandma and the same middle name.
Reese McKenna: My grandfather's name was Ken, so this name would honor him.
Jensen Mei (or Marie): My great-grandmother's name was Jenny. Jensen is a Scandinavian name to honor my Swedish roots and we could call her Jenny or Jen for short. Jim's mom's middle name is Mae... but we would spell ours Mei for obvious reasons.

(Note: We announced our intention to adopt our second China miracle last Mother's Day weekend with this fun little Smilebox slide show. I chose "Over the Rainbow" as the music to accompany that slide show a year ago and it seemed fitting for this post as well. I can scarcely believe that a year has passed since those first exciting days of dreaming about our second daughter. We will continue to wait and dream no matter how long the journey takes.)
