God blessed us with the arrival of Nolan Lucas Hammond on March 20, 2008 at 3:46 PM. He weighed in at 7 lbs 13 oz and was 20 inches long. The experience was more powerful and profound than we could have ever imagined. Nolan is more beautiful than we ever dreamed possible. Nicole was absolutely amazing through labor and beyond. The birth of a child is truly a miracle!
There were some difficulties in the beginning that tested us. What we took from those difficulties are not bad memories or questions why but invaluable lessons on the importance of every moment we have with each other. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, cherish the moment for it can be taken away from you without warning.
Assisted by an outpouring of love and prayers from a lot of people and the best care imaginable, Nolan fought through the early scares and proved to us what we already knew, he is a our little miracle! Thank you to everyone for your prayers and we look forward to cherished moments for a long, long time. We love you all!
