Letter to Expectant Parent(s)
Dear Birth Parent(s),
Our names are Brian and Natalie Nichols. We have been married for over thirteen years and for the first seven years of our marriage, we tried to have a child. We went through many different treatment options, with no luck. Finally, through the miracle of adoption, we became parents to a little boy. After years of trying, praying and begging God for a child, we finally became parents. We were blessed with another newborn through adoption. Now, we'd love nothing more than to add a little girl to our family!
We can't imagine the struggles that you are facing right now and the difficult decisions you are making. Please know that we have the utmost respect for you and your decisions, and admire your strength and courage in making them. To us, you're a hero! Hero's have distinctive traits. They are smart. They are strong. They are full of courage. They are full with an enormous amount of love and they are selfless. Hero's look a lot like you.
We know that an expectant parent puts the needs of a child above the wants of her own heart and we would be honored to be a part of this journey with you, through the tears and the joy. The words "thank you" seem much too simple to express the depth of our gratitude to you. By bringing forth this child, you are not only giving us a gift, you are allowing the world to be blessed by the presence of this wonderful being. We cannot promise him/her a life free from pain or hurt, but we can promise, to be by their side through every obstacle on their life journey and to love them unconditionally! Please know that throughout this process, you are covered in prayer and loved by two people who would be blessed to meet you and your little one.
