for the record

Lauri has documented many of her crystal ball predictions in the adoption world, so I thought I should provide evidence of one that's been given to me twice now.

My friend A. last year referred to d2b as "Anna" off-handedly. He was completely taken aback and a little freaked out--didn't know how the name had come to him.

Then, this week, most of my class found out about my adoption. It's not a secret, they just hadn't really asked. They were so excited and wanted to know all about her--age, hair color and, most importantly, her name. They wanted to know what I would name her. I said she might already have a Russian name. One of my students (another A) said, "I think shes name is Annastasia." So, that's two votes for my favourite grand duchess... We'll see...

That's probably my favorite name for a girl if we receive a referral of a girl from Russia.

Maybe it's meant to be.

Anna and Annastasia are both beautiful names. Maybe it is meant to be!

Beautiful name indeed... that name is always special to us because that was Olivia's name for the first 16 months of her life...

I always loved the name "Kate". I almost named my daughter Kristen that. I had a terrible time deciding between the two names. Then, when we decided to adopt from Russia, of all the Russian names, Ekaterina/Katya was my favorite. Then we were matched with our little Ekaterina/Katya now Katerina/Katya/Kate. I secretly kind of wonder if she wasn't always planned to be ours, and that's why I didn't choose that name for Kristen. What would I have done with 2 Kates?

That would be a really cool coincidence if the same sort of thing happened to you with a little Anastasia/Anna.

Ekaterina/Katya was my favorite too. We got a referral for a girl with that name and were going to keep it, but unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be.
