And the middle name is....

Yi-Shiu! (Yee-Show)

I went back and forth on this decision. I really like Mei, and the connection it has to her birth grandmother. BUT, we kept Jacob and Sara's birthnames so I didn't want Tessa to not have hers. Then, what sealed the deal was today I was talking to my friend Lisa, who is an adoptee from Korea. I asked her opinion and she basically said to definitely keep her birthname. She may hate it at one point in her life, but when she's grown and an adult, she'll really appreciate the connection to her birth. Thanks Lis! :)

So, our girl is Tessa Yi-Shiu. :)
