Bryan graduated! After sharing life with him for the last few months, we were so proud to see him walk across the stage and graduate. He came to us very introverted with few connections in the school socially, but at the end of the year he was having friends over to our house several times a week. As we started going through transition process with him, he started to realize how connected he had become to the Faith community. Through out the year we got to explore and grow his faith as we did life together. Bryan is an amazing guy and we know that God is going to do some amazing things with him.
Moving forward there is a Bryan sized hole in our lives and our kids will miss having him around the table. I (jason) will miss our endless discussions on just about any topics. The kids will miss his un-ending affection. Sarah will miss his delightful interactions and cooking with him.
One thing that this experience has reinforced with me, is how much we are designed to be interconnected with each other as people. When we rub shoulders with people around us we share experiences and life with each other it broadens our views and ultimately given us a better understanding of who God is.
We thank God for giving us the chance to share live with this amazing young man and we know that God used us to change him because God us him to change us!
