I just read the whole thing (something I rarely do) - it was very moving! Thanks for sharing it.

You couldn't have posted anything more touching - I'm in awe and in tears.
I'm so moved by God's presence, and the gifts he has for his children - and he only asks that you knock on that door so you can find him.

Don't you want to know if anyone else in the family went???
Whenever I get a hint of God's Hand, I get a sense of Something so much bigger than I could ever imagine. A FABulous Story - thank you for sending it our way. You rock!

A moving account which is a joy to read with perhaps a tear to the eye.

Thank you so very much

wow this made me cry. I used to tutor a high functioning autistic child that used to be in my preschool class. Jeffrey was the most loveable boy even though he didn't prefer physical contact. Your story made me miss him and stop to say a little prayer for Jeffrey.

Hi Cheryl, I understand this story to a different degree. I have a son who has limitations, he's in Wheelchair. He also has CP but he too has learned as a child to be Free in Him. (Christ of course ). He's never walked, but he has learned to be Free and Dance with the Father! And in His realm there are know limitations only if we put them on Ourselves! So I come from the voice of a Mom who has taught her Son to be Free in the Father! We are limited only if we let Ourselves be. But In Him we truely are Free! I was touched By the story of this young Man and it's meaning. Oh ya I'm Deborah's Mom from Sister Talk .
