Our dear friends,

Our message to you is short and sweet.

You are so brave. You are so strong. You are so capable. You may become an invaluable part of our life, significant as family, or we may never come in contact after you read this. Whatever you choose, please know that we are cheering you on. We pray for you every day.

You are not alone. Don't believe that for one second. You are so very loved, and it. will. work. out. We pray that you will feel the power of your very own Father in Heaven, every step of your journey, where ever He may lead you. He knows you; he loves you. He wants, more than anything, for you to live a happy, beautiful life.

If there is one thing you should know about our family, it would be that we LOVE with everything in us. We have laughed so hard we can't breathe, and cried so hard our bones hurt. We are imperfect. We certainly don't take ourselves too seriously. Our sons get sent to time out, our laundry piles up, and we probably spend way too much time at the beach. We take chances, make mistakes, and get messy. But our life is a beautiful one! We have never forgotten the counsel we were given the day we were sealed: Let there be a lot of love in your home. And there is. So much love!

It is our sincere prayer that you may find the same level of pure joy that life can offer.

We have so much more to share with you!

Thank you for taking the time to read our letter.

With hope,
Chris, Taylor, J and Hugh
