Prom

 Last night was such a touching and emotional night. I am so glad that her school has all of these wonderful events for their students......not many places would treat our kids so special.  It is as important to us as parents as it is to the kids. My heart literally wanted to burst with joy for them.  Their happiness is evident on their faces, and these pictures speak volumes.

My girl's baby blues......stunning....
These two share such a special bond....it melts your heart to see them together.

Such a handsome, sweet kid.....


Patty's mom asked if she was going with anyone to prom....her reply was, "I'll just go with Jimmy and Cortney!" So Jim took two girls to the prom! ; )

Patty was beautiful last night......with her "up-do!"

These two are inseparable.....they are blessed to have each other......

.......and accept one another unconditionally......

.......As always.....thanks for letting me indulge....

Michele, thank you so much for sharing these lovely pictures and video. You see, my sister Patty passed away Friday, she was 64 and had spent 32 years in a Head Trauma Home (a loving home I must add). She was unable to take care of her self, walk,etc. and she had lost her memory, but she could sing, and keep us all laughing with her great sense of humor. God gives blessings in such special ways. Thank you again for sharing, it filled my heart with happiness.

Michele, please forgive me for my rudeness, am afraid I got carried away in my last comments and didn't say how beautiful Courtney is and what a wonderful family she has. This is indeed a fabulous school they attend. The happiness on the faces of these three young people are indeed a blessing to all who see them. Give Courtney a big special hug.

Absolutely precious!!! Loved seeing the video : )

Missy said...

Your photos are incredible Michelle, the kids looked fabulous. I'm in charge of prom at my school. Last year one of our sped students was crowned prom queen---by a huge student body of mainly "regular ed" kids---one of the neatest memories in my teaching career was seeing her crowned queen along side a very poplar football player as king. Those moments are the best!!

This is one of the most touching things I have ever seen in all of my 64 years. Your daughter is beautiful....she is truly blessed to have a mother that is proud of her, and God has blessed you with her. I shall go dry my eyes now and take time to thank GOD for blessing ME with your pictures and video.
