Foster vs. Adoption

Hi there! I know that this is a naming site, but it seems like it’s also a place to get advice for everything. I’m currently in the process of adopting a child in the foster system. And I was wondering if there were any moms on here that have also done that or adopted at all that could give some advice on getting him more comfortable? He is 7 and has been in foster care sine he was 2. He’s name is Maxton James (he’s birth name) which we are going to keep. Thanks in advance! -Emily, Jase and Max :)

It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
