A gift from God

The Covington News - - Opinion -

In our Christ­mas Eve edi­tion, we will be reprint­ing the most fa­mous Christ­mas ed­i­to­rial of all time --“Yes, Vir­ginia There is a Santa Claus.”

While pre­par­ing for our hol­i­day edi­tions, we ran across an in­ter­est­ing story.

This week, an Arkansas mother gave birth to her 18th child; the lit­tle girl was named Jor­dyn-Grace Makiya Dug­gar.

Ma and Pa Dug­gar’s are in their early 40’s and their 17 other chil­dren are ages 1 through 18.

The Dug­gar’s also have a re­al­ity show on the TLC net­work.

Jim Bob Dug­gar, the fa­ther of the chil­dren, said that lit­tle Jor­dyn-Grace Makiya was “the ul­ti­mate Christ­mas gift from God.” Jim Bob we have to agree with you on that one. We can re­mem­ber strug­gling to come up with names for our chil­dren and for the Dug­gars to not only come up with a name af­ter 17 other chil­dren, but also to still be able come up with not just one, but an­other name start­ing with the let­ter “j” for this lat­est bun­dle of joy --it truly is a Christ­mas gift from God. Per­haps they could help other par­ents with their nam­ing dilem­mas.
