  1. We chose the name Sean because we wanted a strong, Irish name. He is such a perfect little blessing to our family!

  2. Sean means “gift from God.” I didn’t know I was pregnant until week 36. Personally, I believe my sweet little boy is undoubtedly a blessing in my life and to those around us.

  3. I chose his name in honor of his uncle who passed away in October 2013 if brain cancer. I also liked the name Sean.
