What’s In A Name

Filed under: Uncategorized — schoffield @ 9:59 pm

I can’t share anything about where we are in process. But I can ask that you pray for our family. There have been some challenges along the way. We are and will continue to fight for this child. We believe that no matter what challenges come our way, this is the Lord’s plan and He is doing some very special work in us right now. Choose to use is our new family motto. Difficulties abound but we are choosing (some days this is hard to do) to see the Lord’s hand in them and use them for the good. And let me assure you, we see and feel Him is all of this.

After changing Baby Mary’s name several times and praying to find the perfect name, we’ve finally decided. She was named before went to Africa but some things changed while we were there–and so did her name. I’m happy to announce that her name is and will be Gracia (gray sha) Joanne Schoff. Gracia means grace (Spanish). We think its just a pretty, unique name that is perfect for this precious girl and the circumstances that surround her joining our family.

Gracia is a beautiful, laid back, and happy girl. She likes attention and loves to eat. She’s a tiny girl of only 12 pounds at seven months. Apparently, she’s been packing on the pounds tho.

My arms have been missing her for three weeks now and I can’t wait to hold her again very soon!



  1. I miss seeing you! We got to talk to Matt Saturday and are praying that your family will be together just as soon as possible. I am sure it is hard being apart right now… but hang in there! It will be one sweet airport reunion!!!

    Love to all,
    Keith and Jena
