We named her Elizabeth Rosalyn after Elizabeth Blackwell and Rosalyn Carter. Elizabeth Blackwell was the first to receive and Medical Degree in the US. And Rosalyn is after Rosalyn Carter, wife of Jimmy Cater who fought for her own causes, including the Equal Rights Amendment, and she was a mental health advocate. She also continues to help others and she is well into her 90's.
First ladies are a reoccurring theme for us, Abigail Adams, and Eleanor Roosevelt.
Abigail Adams believed women should have the right to vote and were important to the success of the Revolutionary War and creating a new nations. She often served as an adviser and confidant to her husband John Adams, the first vice president and second president.
Eleanor Roosevelt was an outspoken activist who constantly campaigned for human rights. She continued to serve well after her husband, Franklin Roosevelt's, the 32nd President, death. She was the longest serving first lady.
These brief summaries do not nearly cover their accomplishments, but they were amazing women.
We hope our daughters take after their strength and independence.
As for learning how to be a mother of 3... It's been interesting, and I know will be a crazy ride. Of course I am sad that I didn't get that boy, but I feel lucky to raise 3 girls, and am very thankful my daughters have sisters. I know my sisters are my best friends.
