CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Hooray. Welcome to the world
Last evening I had the privilege of hearing the amazing news that my nephew was born in wonderful health.
This is such great news for many reasons, new life, new baby, new family member and lastly and so important to my father- the Peigahi name goes forth.
In many cultures to include the Persian culture having the family name go forth is so very important.
We are all on cloud nine although the closest we have gotten is photo texts and Facebook photos. But I saw this wonderful congratulations message written to my father by is his sister in Farsi. I cannot read Farsi any more, but well enough to see that she is congratulating him with all her heart.
The other lovely piece of the puzzle is that his middle name goes after my grandfathers name- meaning stern or lion.
