Special Friends Prom

This past April my classes helped our local adult day center with prom. We did this last year and LOVED it so we were pumped to do it again!
Thursday was spent decorating and getting ready ~
These guys ~
They are my heart.
They are the most awesome group of teens around! They worked tirelessly to make this day perfect for our friends!  
They even helped escort a few of them in for the Grand March.
Sweet Randy ~ he is one that is extra special to us! Jennifer was PRECIOUS
David is the LIFE of the party ~ my students would take him with us if they could!
My junior boys teaching Jeremy to pose! :)
My students loved on these people and made them feel like they were the most special people in the whole world...they didn't see color or disability...they saw their hearts. We have done this for 2 years and both times they have amazed me.
Before the last dance, Susanna spoke and said a blessing over them. She had them repeat that they were fearfully and wonderfully made and that God loved them. Before she could finish, Randy RAN to her weeping and telling her thank you. It was absolutely precious. He has the mental age of a child, yet even he knew that what she said was special and true.
I think we all cried... 
We always go into this wanting to bless the students, but in fact, we are the ones who receive the blessing.
