As far as the positive influence you’ve had on Nicole-holy cow, where do I start! I get teary eyed thinking about it!
You are such a beautiful gift to not only our family, but to so many. I’ve always believed it takes a village to raise a child, and you were my village for Nicole. You have loved her like she was your own no matter what. It wasn’t always easy or convenient but you were always there for her to cheer her on, encourage her, support her, love her, pray for her, hug her, and advise her.
There are no words for my thankfulness to you over the last 10+ years. You mean the world to Nicole and me, and I hope you know how special you are to us. I love knowing she has another mom 🙂
