Making Friends

Coleman's Uncle Chad came down on Friday to take pictures of him for the Friend magazine. For those who don't know, my brother is an editor at the Friend, which is an LDS magazine for children. There is a section in the magazine called Making Friends where they feature a different kid from around the world every month. So, sometime in late 2009 or early 2010 watch for it to feature Coleman! He was so excited to spend the day taking pictures and sharing things about himself for the article. We're hoping that his example will make every child with autism feel more "normal." After all, there's no such thing as disabled, only differently-abled! Thanks Chad for making that day so special for your special nephew!

Here's a couple pics of Uncle Chaddy earning his photo-journalist cred-

At the dinosour museum.

At Thanksgiving Point Gardens.

Can't wait to see what kind of pictures his camera took!

Alicia ~ I think that is so cool! I can't wait to see him in there! What a special thing to do. I love Coleman and his enthusiasm for life. When he was in my primary class, he would get so excited about the things I was teaching, especially when I would tell a story and illustrate it on the chalk board. His face would just light up and he would instruct me on what I should be drawing and how the pictures should look. It was very sweet. I will be watching for him in the months to come!
