Dear Friends and Family,
I want to tell you a story about my litttle Jake. September 5, 2001 was a day that changed our lives forever. Jacob Randall Little "Jake" was born into this world like an angel from heaven. He was a sweet, mild tempered baby who was easily soothed by a song or story. When Jake looked into our eyes, we could tell that he had an incredible sense of wisdom and maturity about him, almost as though he knew what road he was headed down, even before we did. We realized, from that day on, what a true gift from God he was.
We remember, like it was yesterday when the doctors told us a few hours after his birth that he had a sacral dimple. He told us it was something normal, but that it should be examined further. When the results came back normal revealing no hole to his spine and no interference with his spinal cord, there was a tremendous sigh of relief....until, the dreaded word "HOWEVER"....(continued on Our Story Page)
