Perpetually shy Jacob did not want to pose for his adoption picture.
Our baby Jake came to us at only 16 days old. He was a tiny little jelly bean at only 5 pounds, 2 ounces and born 6 weeks premature. When we took him home from the NICU we fell in love immediately. He grew quickly and before long he was even bigger than his big brother, Michael. He had some health problems his first year (RSV - scary!, low tone - lots of PT, OT, and ST), but now he is a happy and healthy preschooler. He is the most compassionate of all my children. He has a wicked sense of humor and loves to make people smile. He will face challenges in the future, but who of us won't? We'll face them together.
Congratulations, Jelly Bean! We're so happy to have you in our family at last!
Jacob and Michael ready for preschool!
