family roads

My husband took this photo when were visiting my brother and sister-in-law in Louisville this past October. They live in the quintessential Kentucky home, a lovely updated farmhouse on several rolling acres at the end of a long, winding driveway. When we got to their house that afternoon, their son Evan greeted us at the door. Evan has autism. He has worked really hard, undergoing intense therapy and schooling for fifteen years now and I know the journey hasn’t been easy for the entire family. But I also know that despite the ups and downs of his challenges, the young man that opened the door that afternoon has one of the purest, gentlest souls in our family.

  1. Hello, and thanks for taking the time to leave your kind comment when you stopped by my blog this morning, thus leading me back to yours. My husband’s family is from (and still lives in) Kentucky, so this lovely vista is a familiar one. And your nephew’s story is an inspiration.
