It is the most powerful creation to have life growing inside of you. There is no bigger gift.

Nichole and I have been best friends since middle school. I can still remember the day she walked into the band room with blue pleather pants and a University of Kentucky hoodie on, because she was from Texas and "trying to fit in." We have been through so much together and life couldn't have possibly provided me with a better friend. 

Last year, Nichole FaceTimed me and was hysterical. I was really scared at first, thinking something horrible had happened and then she held up the positive pregnancy test. I've never felt more excited for someone than in that moment. This ride hasn't been an easy one for Nichole, but if you know her personally, than you know that she handles all hurdles that she faces with dignity and determination. There were many teary phone calls along the way, but here they are now. Just days away from welcoming their little boy into the world and I cannot wait to make that five hour drive to meet him. 

Congratulations, Nichole and Jeremy! You two are going to rock this parenting thing.
