Well we got a call from our case worker yesterday, and she said she needed to know a name for the court proceedings right away. We have been all over the board about this. We all thought Turat is a pretty cool name that had a lot of meaning of who this little guy is. We didn't want to take that away from him, unless there was a name that just stood out as "the one". We have been talking about his name since we got the referral, but until yesterday we didn't know what we wanted to do. I told our case worker that we would have a answer for her by the next day. So last night our girls, Cain, and I discussed our options, and then Cain and I discussed our options till 10:30 at night and we finally made a decision. Our little boys name is going to be Turat Andrew Stahnke. Andrew means love and that so explains everything. We have been told that Turat means standing, and it is a Kyrgyz name, so together his name means standing love. We thought that was so cool! We can't wait now to meet our little Turat. Hopefully we will have a court date and travel dates soon.
