What's in a name? Two mothers choose Grayton

"We were thrilled he was a boy and we got to give him such a cool name," said Megan. "Since we moved back to the area, we get to go and take our Grayton to Grayton often. It's special."


Denise Walsh was living in South Walton when she met her future husband, Edward. While dating, they also frequented hot spots in the area, including those in Grayton.

Even though she moved to Mississippi after marrying on Nov. 13, 2010, the couple returns to the place they fell in love often, along with their extended families.

Denise was diagnosed with a non-cancerous, non-removable brain tumor a year after the couple's wedding and underwent exploratory brain surgery.

After one of the surgeries, the Walshes came to South Walton for a mini-vacation in May 2011.

There was a lot going on with her health at the time, but Denise still she felt it was God's will that she get pregnant and trust Him with the outcome.
