Meet Rachel

Hey everybody! Meet Rachel!  

Rachel is a sweetheart. She is the adopted daughter of my brother and sister-in-law. She is eleven years old and is a pleasure to be around. She is also a special needs child. Rachel is autistic. She is very blessed to have Curt and Lorie as her parents. They understand her and care for her every need. They have had the resources to attend to her special needs medically and otherwise. 

Rachel, with her dad and mom, stayed with us in Thornton for nearly a week. I hope we were good enough hosts. This gave me an opportunity to get to know Rachel much better. Always before it was a couple of hours now and then when we visited Phoenix. I didn't really get to know her. But this was a great time. I found out that Rachel loves parks and she loves snow. So we took a trip up to Vail, and a Vail Pass we found snow and played for a while. Rachel is a bright fun loving kid who loves french fries.

This picture of Rachel, Curt, and Lorie was taken on our back deck.
