More About Our Daughter

So some of you may be wondering, "Izumi? what's that?". Or not. But too bad, I'm going to tell you anyway!

Izumi is a Japanese word/name that is pronounced "ee-zoo-mee" and as with most Japanese words, all syllables are given equal emphasis. It is written: and it means "fountain or spring". Not only do we just like the name, but we also are inspired by the following verse and pray that Izumi will grow to feel this way about Jesus:

"For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light." Psalm 36:9

As for her middle name, Marie, well, that was her Papa's choice!
