I think these pictures are precious! I'm looking forward to many more such pictures after baby's born!
I work with this special needs girl. She's been labeled autistic, but she's got more than just autism going on. According to the State, I provide behavioral care services. What exactly that means, I'm not sure, but she runs the show and she and I clicked, so I was hired for the job. She's comes to my house and hangs out with me 2 - 3 times a week. She has severe anxiety disorder, so we're limited in what we can do. At first, I wasn't sure how she'd deal with Corey or any of the other people who live in my house. But Corey is laid back and unassuming, and it didn't take too long for her to decide she liked this guy.
She was at my house a few days ago and talking up a storm (not a usual occurrence). In the midst of her rambling, she walks over to me and says "Keelie, I miss you," then gives me this kiss and I answer back, "I love you." Then she walks right over to Corey and says, "I love you Corey." I got teary eyed while he just smiled; I think he wasn't sure what to do.:) Now, you'd have to know this little girl to understand how huge this truly was! And perhaps one day when Corey hears this coming from his own children, he won't be so taken off guard. Physical or verbal affection has not always been easy for him, but he's come a long way!
I'm looking forward to watching many endearing moments in the future!
