This is the day we've been waiting for.
It finally came and it was as amazing as I imagined.
Today we were able to meet Heidi and Junior
and deliver to them Benjamin's van.
I know he was smiling from above.
Before handing it off though, 
Stevie and I spent the morning 
cleaning, washing and decorating his van.  
It was a fun way to pass the time 
while we were anxiously awaiting their arrival into town.  
Look at this boy's smile...he LOVES his new van.

Oh just LOOK at Junior's JOY! I think that JOY is the true gift from Ben to Junior. The van is definitely a nice bonus though! ;)

I am so jealous of the hugs you are giving Junior. I can't wait to give YOU a hug like that!

Glad the mission went as planned. Ben is sharing in the JOY!!!

I don't know Stevie but I love her.
God bless you and your family Becky.
Love Lorraine.

The picture of him with his oxygen mask looked like Ben and made me cry.

I agree with your Mom--In that position, he does resemble Ben. He's a lucky boy to have such caring and loving friends.
