Taking a break from all this stress for a little wedding fun........................



One year ago this lovely couple asked Little Buddy to be in their wedding.  The bride to be was part of the medical foster family that Little Buddy was placed in after he was born.  They took amazing care of his complicated medical needs and helped him to grow and develop.  They love him so much and still are very much a part of his life.  If you are new to this blog you  can read about Little Buddy's arrival into our family here and about this amazing family here.  They are like aunts and uncles to him, they rejoice in his accomplishments and laugh when he is a bit naughty.


I am still very active with this family, seeing them twice a week for several hours as I work with some of the children in their care.  They have adopted two girls in addition to the grown children they already have.  They are an inspiration to me everyday.  Little Buddy has been preparing for this day for almost a year, mostly being worried about what his walker would be decorated like!


Here is the wedding outfit.  He loved his belt and bow tie. 


His job on this very special day was to walk in front of the bride and her father, right after the flower girls.  He took his responsibilities very seriously!  He walked slowly so everyone had time to see his signs, both front.........................


and back.....................


Little Buddy used his walker for the ceremony and then his forearm crutches the rest of the evening, even while dancing.   It was a beautiful day, and we are so blessed that Little Buddy was asked to have such a special role in the festivities.

Oh how cute is he in his little fancy duds? What a doll and how happy he looks! His smile tells the whole story. I'm glad you got to be involved in this happy event. Where did you find that gorgeous sign in front of his walker? The writing on it is beautiful! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Oh how fabulous!!! I am sure that the Bride and Groom felt very blessed to have Buddy - who is looking far too grown up and taller now to be called Little Buddy! - at their special day. I love the signs, I love the bow tie, the dancing with crutches, and I can just imagine how wide your and your husbands smiles must have been! You must have been so proud and pleased and happy to see your youngest man participating in such a great way. I hope that the Bride and Groom have a wonderful, long and happy marriage and that Buddy will be there with them all the way as a friend!
