I would just like to clarify that in the article "Hope in the Fight" (Feb. 1) Natural Family Planning was not being followed according to the rules to avoid pregnancy. Julia was a surprise to us but not because of Natural Family Planning. We welcome all children that God sends us with open hearts. Natural Family Planning has kept our marriage strong and loving because we are not using each other, and it fosters a deep respect for the other marriage partner. The divorce rate is much lower in married couples using NFP. For more information, contact The Couple to Couple League.
