The laughs, love, and growth we all see everyday remind us of God in our midst. How hard Jake works to fit into conversations, learn the ins and outs of social thinking and forming relationships is amazing and exhausting at times. But we see God working in him.
I tell people often, that I may have a cool job, and lots of really nice connections professionally and personally, but I do not have the power to construct this path we are walking with our Super Hero. The steps we take are placed before us like a yellow brick road, guiding us to more opportunities to help people learn and love those with Autism. We believe Jake was placed on Earth to do God's work and we are thrilled! Our advocacy pathway is Divinely Designed!
While we pray about each step before jumping, we still sometimes jump blindly anyway. Out of our comfort zone but trusting in Greatness!
Now, God has placed before us the chance to see/meet the most amazing Pope in Jake's lifetime. (I saw and loved JPII, but that was before Jake's time). We will take this opportunity and are eternally grateful to those that made it happen.
I wondered what Jake really understood about the Pope so we decided to do a little Q & A! Here it is! Enjoy.
