There is this young couple, both working full-time jobs, with full-time responsibilities including two children nearing college age, a home with I’m sure a mortgage and all the expenses that go with an urban lifestyle. The husband had a younger sister who has special needs. The younger sister had lived with her parents until the mother was placed in a nursing home. At this point the young woman was placed in an assisted living facility. It was not the best of circumstances for the young woman and she was not flourishing. This is where my story really begins.
Our family has been blessed with some really wonderful people. For the past six or so years my brother John and his wife Lisa and their two children Alex and Anna have virtually adopted our youngest sister Lori Ann. They brought her into their home and family and have given her a life abundant with love, filled with great friends and more happiness than any one person could want in a lifetime. She vacations with my sisters Linda and Debbie in NE Pennsylvania as well as our oldest sister Janice in Atlanta, GA. She has been blessed with wonderful supportive people in her life.
Below are some pictures that will show just how much love, compassion and understanding Lori Ann receives.
It’s all about the love ……
