A Letter From Mom and Dad

                On Your Wedding Day

 We held you as our newborn daughter and we said, “Thank You God, for this precious gift”. A Mother and Father’s love allow them to dream only the most precious of dreams in those first years and for many years to come…. and we dreamed our dreams for you. You were also given another precious gift when you were born. You grew up to know it as your Family. We learned that it takes a Family to raise a child. For only Family provides a bond that can never be broken and a love that endures all.

 

We prayed that for all of your years to come, God would watch over you. He answered our prayers and sent only the most precious of His Angels to love you. We envisioned all that you would become. In our hearts we knew that you were a Special person in this world from the time you were born and that as time passed, you could only become even more so. We watched you grow up all too fast...and we were so very proud of you. You soon needed your independence. Then came the realization that you had to make choices in life that only you could make... You became a young Woman.

 

A Mother and Father held their newborn Son and said, “Thank You God, for this most precious gift”. A Mother and Father’s love also allowed them to dream only the most precious dreams in those first years and for many years to come... They dreamed dreams for their Son. Their son, too, received the precious gift of Family from the time he was born. Once again, a Mother and Father learned that it takes a Family to raise a Child; for only a Family can provide a bond that can never be broken and a love that endures all.

 

They, too, prayed that for all the years to come, God would watch over their child. He answered their prayers and sent only the most precious of His Angels who loved their son. This child would become a Special person in this world; even more special than when he was born. He grew up all too fast and became a wonderful young Man.

 

Our Families have been blessed. We have come together to share in this Special Day. Our daughter; we feel such love and pride in our heart as we remember the child that you once were and now look at the beautiful Woman you have become and we say to all... “This is our daughter and.... This is our new son!  We are now Family. We love you both so much and we will always be here for you; to share whatever your dreams may be”.
