Troy and Bev

Troy and Bev

The love of a brother

This picture was taken on my birthday when Todd’s brother and his family came to the house.  The whole family decided to go for a walk at the Nature center.  Todd, my husband, all of my children except Jacob, who is serving a mission in Mexico, my two grandchildren, Troy, Clarrisa, Caleb, James, Celia-Marie and Bev.  It was a beautiful day and sunny, but there was a slight chill in the air.  While we were walking, I captured this picture of Troy and Bev.  Bev is an indian girl who was “adopted” as a 14 year old girl.  She had been beaten and badly damaged as a young child and has never healed from the wounds.  She has mental and physical challenges at the age of 50 something.  She lives with Troy and Clarrisa and their family takes great care of this sister of theirs.  This photo exemplifies the way that Bev is taken care of on a daily basis.  It shows the love and concern that Troy has for her as he holds her hand and walks with her.  I love the contrast in the photo… the sun beating down, the greenery blowing in the wind, Troy in his white shirt and Bev in pink.  Troy tall and strong, Bev small… but never weak.  She has endured too much to ever be considered weak.  I am blessed to be a part of this family.
