Birth announcement: Joseph Mark Clement!

I posted a consultation for Sara and her husband back in March, and Sara has let me know that their baby boy has arrived and been given the tremendous name … Joseph Mark Clement!

Sara writes,

Baby boy arrived a bit early on Holy Saturday! We ended up picking Joseph Mark Clement. Thank you for giving us the confidence to pick Joseph! Victor was a close contender as well. Many of our friends and family have asked or commented about how much they like the name, and especially ask about Clement. It’s a great way to introduce the idea of Divine Mercy … We love the meaning and people and saints wrapped up in this name. The bigger kids have really latched onto JoJo, so I think that will be his day to day name for now. (When he is sad Dad sings to him about how little bro JoJo has woes and must be rocked to and fro.) Thank you again for all your help and encouragement!

I absolutely love hearing the joy in the “voice” of parents letting me know about the name they ended up choosing for their baby — it’s such an amazing thing to give such special and meaningful names to their little one! Joseph Mark Clement is so great!!

Congratulations to Sara and her hubby and big sibs Adelaide, Francis (in heaven), and Benedict, and happy birthday Baby Joseph!!
