    Funny you should ask.

    He wants Amanda.

    She wants Taylor Anne, and has started calling the baby that.

    (I was pulling for Hope, but they didn't ask me :) )

    We'll see what they tell the doctor tomorrow.

    Alice, that is a wonderful, heartwarming story. I am very happy for Dominic and Vivian. That little miracle will be treasured and loved by many!

    It, and The Tigger Movie, are my go-to adoption gifts. As it turns out, a neighbor was having a garage sale Saturday, and I grabbed Viv to see if they had any baby stuff. (They did, but it was WAY too expensive.) But they had The Tigger Movie (though on VHS.)

    I had to get it for her, after checking to be sure they have a VCR.

    Let them know an anonymous stranger from the internet would like to cast an absentee ballot for Taylor Anne. I'm not particularly fond of Amanda. Taylor Anne just looks and sounds beautiful.

    How are they doing as far as maternity/paternity leave? I hope they have understanding bosses! If they were planning to adopt, then perhaps this was part of the plan.

    She doesn't work; she stopped commuting to NYC after 9/11.

    He works in the insurance agency his dad owns.

    MIke, I'll be more than happy to help them with managing a newborn.

    But the choice of a name is theirs. I had my shot, and I chose names I love. This is their shot. They've earned it.

    Thanks, Mike! (look at the first part of my user name, and I bet you can figure out my first name...) :p

    Taylor Anne is beautiful, though. :)

    I was adopted at 17 days old, and we got my sister at 5 days old. That baby is so blessed to have been "chosen"! Thanks for sharing a beautiful story!
