When Ashley and Will began dating, she was upfront with him about one unconditional aspect of their relationship: she and her sister were a “package deal.”
Ashley’s sister, Hannah, has Down syndrome as well as diabetes, and Ashley is the one who takes care of her. Hannah relies on Ashley, and Ashley knew that no matter what the future held for them both, she wasn’t ever going to leave Hannah on her own.
Will accepted that fact and the pair became close. He became Hannah’s best friend and was there for her in any way that he could be. But when it was time to pop the question to Ashley, he knew that he couldn’t leave Hannah out.
When he asked Ashley to marry him, she said yes! But that wasn’t the end of it…
Before you knew it, he was down on one knee, asking her to be his best friend forever! It was the sweetest moment in my whole life watching Hannah be so happy and feeling so special.” Ashley said.
Hannah was ecstatic. Ashley doesn’t know what the future holds for her sister, but hopes that one day, the perfect person will come along and sweep her sweet sister off her feet! Until then, Hannah is welcome in her own life as much as possible.
The couple plans to include Hannah in the ceremony with vows, a dress, and even a first dance with Will!
