His name was chosen after we experienced several encounters with the Lord during the pregnancy. Both of us were brought to the conclusion that Samuel should be his name, and Leeland refers to a meadow, pasture land or valley. We chose this name because we felt it reflected our journey through some valleys to reach Samuel.
We are grateful for the many encouragements we received before and after Sammy was born. Also, your prayers for us have been answered in a sweet and wonderful way. Thank you for praying and encouraging!
