Richard and Louise Link are the newest members of the Birthright of Loveland board.
After many years of living in Loveland, the Links now live in Berthoud and have three grown, married children and five grandchildren. Having adopted one of their children in 1976, the Links were inspired to start the local Birthright chapter in 1980, for which Louise served as the first director. The Links joined the board to help mothers through unplanned pregnancies and look forward to celebrating Birthright’s 30th anniversary in 2010.
Dick currently works in real estate and Louise continues to provide office support as she has throughout their 39 years of marriage. The Links met at Emporia State Teachers College where Dick received his Bachelor of Science and master’s degree in education, and Louise received her bachelor’s degree. Both taught school in their early careers, which took them to Germany, Portugal and Jackson Hole, Wyo.
Birthright of Loveland, located at 1528 N. Lincoln Ave., assists young women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy.
