On the plane ride to Ft. Lauderdale I met the coolest guy. We blabbed like a couple of little girls for hours, talking about everything! What a story he has. He and his partner were either the first, or one of the first (can’t remember) gay couples to adopt a child in our state. Their child went through quite a journey as a little guy to get to them. That child is now a teenager. He is smart, and kind. He is in a gifted program and will be graduating high school with a college degree. This kid is going places! He also has a best friend with Asperger’s, which warms my heart.
I was off to cruise the Caribbean. Ed was on his way to help several children who were up for adoption in Haiti before the earthquake, get to the U.S. to begin their new lives.
I just really liked him.
And then we parted ways.
And I regretted not having taken his picture. I mean, I felt such a connection!
I really did.
But, ask and it is given!
He was on my flight home, in the seat right in front of me! Look at that beautiful smile!
The Universe never ceases to amaze me.
