    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    i <3 your son's name! i haven't been on in awhile, so i don't know when you actually picked a name and said what it was...

    i have a cousin who named his son Kawika...my uncle's name is John Dave and my brother's middle name is Keoni, so my cousin wanted a name for his son that would be all his own, but also in honor of his dad...so he chose Kawika (for those of you who don't know, Kawika (ka-vee-kah) means David.

    anyway, i saw that you had posted on your monday updates and i saw your son's name...i thought i would let you know that i adore it! :smile: take care!!!

    Thanks, Shana! It took us a while to decide, but DF eventually decided he wanted Kawika for his grandfather. His name was David and he passed away a year ago; he was really a father figure to DF since his dad wasn't around, and he decided that naming our son after him, yet still honoring his Hawaiian half, was a really good compromise :) It also means "beloved" and we loved that about it, too.

    Glad you stopped by!! How's Jennaraya doing? ((HUGS))
