Everyone meet Rise Ivory Burroughs, our newest addition to the Burroughs family. January 6 @ 7:11 am 8lbs, 5oz. With each of our little ones @lolo_burroughs and I agreed to select a symbolic name, as a means of direction for who they are, why they’re here, and how meaningful they are to us. We hope their names serve as reminders of the amazing people that we know they will become. Her first name, Rise, means to come into existence or take shape; move from a lower position to a higher one; and to uplift or ascend. We pray that her life is an embodiment of the quote, “We rise by lifting others. Her middle name Ivory is an ode to my ancestry. A few years back, I did a DNA test that informed me that the majority of my lineage could be traced back to the Ivory Coast of West Africa. We always want our children to remember where we come from. And that’s how we settled on a name. Our Rise Ivory. Lauren is doing great, and we’re so thankful for our healthy little one’s arrival. We can’t wait for you all to meet her. -JB 🙌🏾
