We were able to go out on a date Friday night. We love the special needs ministry at our church, babysitting all the siblings once a month so that parents of special needs’ kids can spend time together alone. It actually makes me wanna well up, thinking of all the billions of ways you can serve people. They are a gift to us.
After dinner we walked around Barnes and Noble, skimming books for an hour. I came around the corner, though, and found Ryan reading a book of poetry*.
It’s interesting how it’s taken the hardest time in our lives to finally see the beauty in each other. He’s funny, smart, kind, and deep. That’s pretty much what 16 year old Carrie wanted.
