Out of all the decisions Sarah and I made before our girls were born, naming them was one of the hardest. But with Bowen, every decision has been harder than choosing a name. ย We believe that God knits every child together in the womb, just like Psalms 139:13-14 says,

“For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praie You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

For some reason, God gave Bowen a little heart, and whether or not it’s His will to make it bigger someday, we believe that Bowen’s story will be bigger than any heart and that his spirit will remain victorous.

So why Bowen? Because it was the only name we could find that meant small, victorious one. (http://www.babynamespedia.com/meaning/Bowen)
Also, we think it’s pretty cool.
As for his middle name?ย I’m a proud daddy, ’cause my wife wants his middle name to be Matthew…
So it’s official…Bowen Matthew Hammitt
