Baby Brother had some complications after birth and was in the hospital for 2 1/2 weeks after birth. His mom left the hospital before naming him and sadly, she never returned to give him a name. His name on the birth certificate is Infant.
As his future adoptive family, we have been given the honor of naming him so we told Lili and Naomi they could chose his first name.
The case worker had asked us what name we had chosen for Baby Brother. She informed me that the department has a policy of providing a copy of the birth certificate to Kinship caregivers and it is easier and better to give the baby a name and update the birth certificate than leave a child unnamed.
Since this change is being made, I thought I would go ahead and share that the name we’ve chose for Baby Brother is . . . . . . .
If all goes well, we will complete Ezran’s adoption in July or August and at that time, our last name will be added as his legal last name.
