what’s in a name?

I’ve been resisting the temptation to write a “F U Universe” type post since my last one.  So we’ll try this instead.

I said in my second post that the name Amber Rains had a meaning.  Perhaps now is the time to explain it?

DH and I started talking about names for our children long before we ever started TTC.  In fact it was back in 2003 that we first agreed on a name, and that name was Amber Rose (for a girl, obviously).  So, Amber is the little girl we’ve been seeking for the last 3 years.  The Rains part is for all the tears that have showered down since we started this journey.

Appropriately, it is raining outside as I write this…
