FC: Retrac and Beth Ann

1: Dear Birth Parent(s), We are so grateful that you are taking the time to read about us, and without a doubt, very excited that you are considering us as an adoptive family for your child. There is nothing that we can say that could match the magnitude of the decision you are making. We do know that we have you in our hearts and prayers. We pray that whatever decision you make, you will have peace. You will always stay in our hearts, minds, home and family. The sacrifice you are making will never be forgotten. With love, Retrac, Beth Ann and Austin "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and future." {Jeremiah 29:11}
