    Finalized a long-awaited adoption!

    My husband and I are happy to announce the adoption finalization of our daughter Mariah Juline on August 1st. She was placed with us at birth, and, just after her second birthday, we joyfully celebrated her adoption. After much thoughtful consideration, we chose to give her a new name upon adoption. Her nickname, Mia, naturally arose from her birth-name, so we knew her new name would have to make sense with Mia as her nickname. We wanted a familiar but less common name, and we both loved Mariah. Juline is sort of a family name. My mother almost chose it to name my youngest sister. She told us this when we were young, and we loved the name so much that we created an imaginary fourth sister named Juline. She was, of course, always the favorite sister!

    Congratulations! Adoption is such a beautiful thing. You've chosen such a meaningful middle name (and I've never heard of Juline; it's gorgeous!) and I think Mariah nn Mia is splendid!
