My Story

Jacob is currently 6 years old and is in Kindergarten. He plays soccer and baseball, and can't wait until he is big enough to play football. If you ask him what he likes, he'll tell you candy, playing with nerf guns, and watching the Headless Horseman movie. Jacob has so much spunk, yet he also has a very sensitive side. He loves hanging out with his family, and he is a total "momma's boy". Jacob has been through so much in the past year and a half, and his tough experiences have made him the strong, brave person he is today. He lives by the slogan "Small but Mighty". Jacob is a true survivor and has learned to take life head-on.
