This is Stefanie and Matt.
Stefanie and Matt have been working together for almost six years. Stefanie supports Matt and his family in Respite services. I love this picture because it captures their relationship so well! They were spending time outside together, which is something Matt doesn’t get to do often due to the heat. They were waving at cars that passed by and talking about all the fun things that they like to do together.
When I asked Matt what his favorite thing to do with Stefanie was he told me that he liked to play games with Stefanie. They play Planco and the Price is Right together; Matt is also a champion bowler both on the Wii and at the bowling alley! Stefanie and Matt spend a lot of time laughing and talking. It is so great to see!
