I am one of those people who rarely will cry at a funeral but will use a whole box of Kleenex at a wedding!!! There is just something miraculous and very emotional about that bonding of two people....well, unless you know you are attending someone's "first wedding," as Grouchy once described a friend's upcoming ceremony. Let's face it, we could all tell it wouldn't work.....but the two young lovers could not!! And when it comes to the emotions I have toward the people who work with Garrett, I am a total, useless mush!!!
I cry at the end of a school year as we say so-long to teachers, therapists, and aides. I cry when a therapist moves away or changes jobs and says goodbye. I cry when a caregiver has to move on to other clients and away from our lives. And I even lose it sometimes at doctors' offices when the doctors and nurses love Garrett so completely!! What a mess!!!!
But for now I want to introduce to Garrett's Shelby. She has probably graced the blog before, but this is a recent photo of them together. Shelby is Garrett's developmental therapist. She is a full time high-schooler, and a perfectly delightful, beautiful, fun and SOOOO SWEET young lady. She has out total trust and complete appreciation for the 22+ hours she has Garrett every week. And this web site doesn't have enough space available for me to expand on how amazing she is with Garrett!
