  1. That’s exactly what she gives everyone HOPE..!

  2. Mommy and Daddy picked it

  3. We picked Hope bc we had 3 boys before her & we habe been hoping n praying for a girl. When we were discussing names my husband had read off 100s of names and when he read off Hope she started kicking like crazy. We decided she must of liked the name n the meaning behind it bc we had Hoped for so long to get a little girl. My husbands family only produces boys so we never imagined we’d get a girl. Her middle name is Realynn shes named after her father & myself. His middle name is Ray & mine is lynn so we combined them n came up with Realynn.

  4. Sara Hope is special to us because of what she represents. We chose “Hope” as her middle name because she was our Hope during the long drawn-out immigration process. I was in the USA and my husband was stuck in Kenya for 5 months waiting for visa approval. We had no way of knowing if he would make it here in time for her birth- He arrived the day before she was due (Thanksgiving)! And then our baby girl was 3 weeks late. She is everything we could have hoped for, and continues to delight us everyday. She is a living reminder that prayer and hope can triumph even when life seems most impossible.

    She is our Hope that the world can learn to accept and love those who don’t fit into a box. Because of her Kenyan-American heritage, she will always be beautifully different. It is our job to make sure she learns to love her differences and embraces both cultures equally.

  5. I named my daughter hope after my boyfriend cousin that got killed

  6. We chose the name Hope because of the hope that we have in Jesus! Our prayer for her is that she place her hope and faith in Him at a young age and follow Him all of her days!

  7. Inspirational

  8. Hope is my 4th child, we have a lot of fun. I named her hope because she gave me the passion back in parenting!

  9. Name based on Jeremiah 29:11…always reminding me of Gods hope.
