I chose the name Ruth because of the book in the Old Testament Christian bible. Ruth was a woman who was not born into the inheritance of the Hebrew people, yet her actions and loyalty to a Mother (Naomi) who did not give birth to her was unwavering. Like me. I am adopted, though, I don’t think of it like that.

Ruth was strong and independent, she went against the grain of her time and set a precedent that changed the very lineage of the Hebrew people, her chain link is a shining example of how one person can change the world. Like me.

That’s why I chose the name Ruth, because I am strong and determined and I will make a path for a people not my own.

With Love
