Caution! Tissues Needed

There is a wedding story I wanted to share; I know it's already been posted on a few blogs last week, but I still wanted to share it here too. It's a very touching story and you need to watch the video clip to get the full affect. I dare you to watch the video and not have tears in your eyes!

here is the short article that goes along with it:

Special Wedding for a Special Couple
FORT COLLINS - If you cry at weddings, this is one that requires extra tissues. The love story involving Tiffany and Taylor will touch your heart.

Like many couples, they met in college. Both were attending East New Mexico University in Roswell when they met at a dance.

Taylor says he looked into Tiffany's eyes and "A light in my heart started to bloom bigger and bigger."

On Valentine's Day, Taylor got down on one knee and proposed. When Tiffany said yes, Taylor says he knew that light would never leave his life.

Tiffany is from Fort Collins and Taylor is from Texas. They decided to marry in Fort Collins and make their home there.

Their story is unique because of the challenges they face. Both Tiffany and Taylor have Down Syndrome, or as Taylor prefers to call it "Up Syndrome."

They are fiercely independent and responsible. They have held several jobs, pay their own bills and maintain their homes.

Now, they will do those things together.

When they married a couple of weeks ago Tiffany's mother said, "They are a couple that is much better together, than they are apart."

In many ways their marriage is the perfect blend of patience and love. When asked about what Taylor would be thinking when he saw Tiffany on their wedding day, he responded with, "That's my love, and when I see her walking down the aisle, I see an angel, my guardian angel."

I couldn't download the video, but it still brought me to tears. I love what Tiffany's mother said. And good for them working together and doing so well. Very special. And I like the new term Up Syndrome! I think it should be officially changed to that, don't you?

I hope you are catching up on some much needed rest from your vacation! There's no place like home even when you are having a wonderful time, is there?

How beautiful!

Hey, have you read the book "The Memory Keeper's Daughter"? I thought it was a great book!

If you've read it, let me know what you thought.

Tammy said...

Oh, thank you for sharing this story. I watched the whole clip...so very beautiful!

(And by the way, welcome home!) :)

Shelley said...

Oh that's wonderful - I hadn't seen their story - will definitely watch the video (with tissues on hand) when I have a bit more time in the next few days. I hope they have a long and very happy marriage.

Thanks for sharing, what a sweet story!

Brought tears to my eyes too. Just beautiful.
Did you ever see the move titled "Up Syndrome"? It's really good and funny. I have a copy if you haven't seen it. Well, I think Shannon has it but that's practically the same thing.

Sonya said...

Ok, I needed a box of tissues! What an inspiring story!

Susie Q said...

I remember seeing this and also reading about them. What a special couple and what an inspiration to all couples.

Dreams can come true...

Hugs to you all,

what beautiful love...and what a wonderful news station for doing this kind of story. in my long history of being a friend and a worker to many Down's kids and adults...you don't see this kind of public exposure often!

now, i'm a bit of a slob, so i didn't use kleenex...but yes, there were tears. i just soaked them up with my sleeve. :)
