New Child, New Name

Hello Dear Reader,
The Sneeds had been almost afraid to come back to our house for fear Billy would cry and hang on them again. But their fears were calmed when they did return and Grandpa (Wes) and Grandma (Mary) were able to have a good visit with them.

In the course of the conversation Grandpa and Grandma mentioned that they were concerned about what to name him. Sister Sneed said they had had that conversation on the trip to Utah and their oldest daughter said, "His name should be Billy David--Billy because that was already his name and David after David O. McKay, the prophet, of course." I remember the adults all laughing and deciding that that was the perfect name. So Grandpa and Grandma's new little son was named Billy David Carter. Not William. Grandma could never pronounce the name "William" but Billy. His name wasn't completely new--just the middle and last parts.

I've loved reading these posts about Billy's adoption process. What a darling little boy he was!
