There is something about this picture that captures Chads joy! It was taken while he was in Costa Rica at a hostile with people from all over the world. And he's as comfortable as he would be at home.
My brother Dave had a quote on his peechee folder more than 30 years ago that I memorized, and it came back to me when I saw this picture...

The smile on your face is like the light in the window that tells people you're at home 

When you are with Chad , you are at home!
He loves new people, new experiences, and has such an amazing way about him that makes you immediately feel  like you  have met a great new friend. No awkward silences or lulls in conversation and he is genuinely interested in everyone he comes across.
What a gift to have that trait....Exactly like my mom and dad!!

I love you Chad and just wanted you to know how great I think you are!! 
And I am trusting that rum belonged to someone else at the table : )

Of course the rum belonged to someone else, but I'm guilty of having my fair share :) Thanks for thinking of me, Love you too!

Chad Carter is one special kid! He has grown up and become the man that God wants him to be! I pray for Chloe to find a treasure like Chad-man! Always thinking about others and he truly brings JOY to everyone who has the honor to meet him! Lisa Gould if you are reading this "The two of you are a match made in heaven"! I love you Chad! Thanks K & S for raising a gem!!!!!!!
