Jae Miles Herzog
Miles was Paul's idea. And yes, the name came to him while he was out on a long run a few weeks ago. But it had more to do with how many miles we have to travel to get Jae...and how every one of them is worth it. The more and more I think about it, the more it fits. The adoption process is not a short one and the name Miles just works.
Today was a rough day for missing Jae. Rather than retreating straight to my hotel this evening, I ventured to the near-by mall and spent close to 2 hours looking at baby things. It is hard to pick up clothes that are for 12 month olds and wonder if Jae is going to be too big for them by the time he comes home. I miss him.
