While waiting for the name change our sons name was still legally what it was when he was born. Meaning his school records, medical aid and even our will all had to stating his birth name. 9 months after we applied for his new birth certificate, we finally received it What an awesome thing to see my name on this piece of paper under my sons official name as birth mother.
I still remember pulling his name from a hat full of potential names one lazy Saturday afternoon in 2012. The name Hayden is a name I have wanted for my son since I was 12 years old so when it won the lucky draw 3 times in a row I was over the moon.
Our family is doing well, Hayden of course runs the show at home and has his grandparents wrapped around his chubby little finger, as a matter of fact he has most people wrapped around that little finger. He’s a charmer alright and has a smile that will melt your heart in seconds. Tantrums have started and I am hoping it’s as bad as it gets even though im not so sure about that. Hayden’s tantrums arent of the kicking and screaming variety. No, Hayden’s tantrums are more creepy than stressful. He will simply drop whatever he has in his hands and reverse until the wall stops him and hell sit right there while making eye contact the entire time to show that he is not impressed. The word no sets him off pretty quickly as well as making him say please before giving him something he wants… manners are a work in progress at the moment.
I am still amazed at how similar he is to us and there is no doubt in my mind that he was born especially to be our son. I mean the events that took place to
enable us to adopt him are undeniable. Kfm, Highveld sterio and the company I work for unknowingly played a part in helping us bring our baby home, thanx guys.
