An emotional meaning about the name Sean

So I looked up the meaning of Sean online today out of curiosity what it says the meaning was and as I read what the meaning was I started to tear up.

As you read it you may very well especially if you know our story.

Here is the meaning of Sean- Irish variant of John: God is gracious; and a gift from God.

A gift from God is where I began to get emotional. I know God is us only what we can handle and I know God selected Sean for us and Sean is truly a gift.

But it really brings to home about God only giving us what we can handle and God picks special people for special babies.

I heard that over and over again after Sean was born early and than finding out about the stroke, the seizures, the schizenphally, and everything else it really has a different meaning to me.

God gave us Sean because he knew we could handle it and love him for everything he currently is and will be.
