I'm in love ...


And I don't care who knows it! We originally met seven years ago and he just recently came back into my life and I couldn't be happier ...

As I began my work with people with disabilities back in June of 2001, this client was one of the first clients I worked with and fell in love with. Due to his very challenging behaviors, other staff members refused to work with him. But I wanted nothing more than to spend every day with this amazing guy ... Due to confidentiality reasons I cannot show pictures of him at our program, but I can show pictures of him seven years ago. :)


How adorable is he?? The photo on the top right is our first photo together, as we played in the nasty waters of First Dam. :) ... As luck would have it, he began attending the program I work for now ... and in attempt to help his new staff be better trained with him, I got to spend the entire day with him!


I don't know how many other opportunities I will have to spend with him in the future, but I am sure grateful for the day we had today! :) He will always be one of the first guys to have stolen my heart! :)

Wow. The title of this post got me all excited for yet another confession (I mean, who knew you would ever come out with the Provo love?). But, I think that Jimmy is a perfect candidate instead. :-)
And, I really admire you and your profession. That's all.

Please do not mention my name in the same sentence with Steve Reeder EVER AGAIN, also I think Jimmy went to school at The Ellis Elementary where I was a fine custodian
