    I love this story! You need to submit it for some kind of a collection. Really.

    Great story and I understand “special.” Cate

    It was thrilling, really, to experience Jack in all his autismal (is that a word?) glory. He really is (as all your kids are) terrific! It didn’t bother any of us that he was stimming and dumping kayaks :). Jen was delighted to have her favorite kids there (minus one niece) and as her sister, I know that she loves them as much as they love her.
    Thank you for letting us share you all for a day. It really wouldn’t have been the same without you there.

      As always Carrie, smiles from start to finish of your read…

    I would like I borrow that kayak.

    Jack AND Jennifer are blessed to have each other in their lives.

    This is a fantastic piece, friend.

    This is really beautiful and so sweet that your kids are family to this couple. They really had such precious wedding ideas too. These really are the stories that make it a memorable day.

    The whispered scream and threats of what I was going to do letter made very quietly in little ears were my main weapons as a parent of three boys. None of mine were ‘special’ unless you count specially unruly, but I guess kids are much the same no matter what.

    I loved this story Carrie! And I do believe we all have “special” moments in life!
    You and Joe are great parents, and are raising great kids. Blessings.
