    I have a stepdaughter that came into the world under unusual circumstances and I often think her name should reflect more of who she is than just a name her mother liked. This child-who came into the world three years after her parents divorced with no intervention from science-has showed me more about sacrifice, hope and faith than I thought was possible. Every day her mother, father and me receive the gift of a child that was just meant to be.

    It’s hard to put into words, but I hope Valor brings the same to you.

    Love the name. I didn’t have time to figure out the puzzle, I printed it out but with 3 boys in baseball and all of Rylands appt I’m pretty busy. If you get a chance check out Ryland’s site. Take Care:)

    I didn’t have time to do the puzzle- kitchen remodel and dealing with my son’s consistent health issues- plus to be honest the puzzle scared me a little- so even if I had time, I’m not sure I would have tackled it. But, as I was certain, the name is amazing and one I am sure your son will be proud of for the rest of his life. I love it. Edwards is a favorite (of course) and Valor- is perfect… a reflection of his heritage.

    Baby Valor,

    Since I know you are going to be a lot like your parents, I can’t WAIT to meet you, get to know you, and enjoy life with you!

    You are already a joy and a delight to all who know of you and your parents, and I can only imagine what the Lord will do with you!!

    We rejoice with you at the Lord’s faithfulness in your lives. It will bring all of us great JOY to soon meet Valor Edwards.

    This is so beautiful. Valor Edwards Gjersten, you’ve got some of the most amazing parents. You may not notice how weird your parents are, since you’ll probably be just as weird – in the most endearing ways.
