"Will and I met 7 years ago. When I first met Will, I introduced him to my sister Hannah and I told him we were a package deal. Hannah has Down Syndrome and Diabetes and will always need to be under my parents or my care. Someday when my parents are no longer here, I will be Hannah's full time guardian. Hannah and I are best friends first, sisters second. We do everything together and I could not have asked God for a better sister. Hannah brings out the best side of me. So of course, Will had no problem and took Hannah in as a sister, including her on dates, always remembering flowers for her on valentines day and everything in between. He protected her and cared for her like the best big brother.
Fast forward 5 years and I had scheduled a photo session last spring to get some family shots. Will secretly messaged the photographer and let her know of his plan. He had gotten a ring from my late grandmother to give to Hannah, and his great grandmother's ring to give to me. We began taking some photos, and Will got down on his knee and asked Hannah to be his best friend forever. He then got down on his knee and asked me to be his wife. Our wedding was 2 weeks ago and it was lovely. We included Hannah in every aspect. She walked down the aisle with Will's grandfather and stood behind me during the ceremony. She then exchanged vows with Will and told him she always promises to go fishing, tell funny jokes, and always care for him. She thanked him for being in his life. Will did the same, promising the same promises and telling her she's one in a million. They vowed to be best friends forever and hugged. At the reception, Hannah sat next to me at the head table and shared a first dance with Will to 'You've Got a Friend in Me' by Michael Buble. She had a wonderful time. I love Will beyond compare for including Hannah in our lives the way he does. It is truly a blessing to know I can trust Will with Hannah. Will and I have a great friendship and Hannah is just the perfect addition. We based our whole wedding theme on friendship and I am so glad our message is spreading."
