3 Years Since We Met Little Jake

What a ride it has been

Jake has brought out the best and worst in our family.

a bit of background

Jake spent the first 8 years of his life in some of the worst institutions ever seen by western observers. We got him -- but not before he was damaged by the horrific lack of care

Jake is: Sweet, evil, loving, hating, happy, sad, giggly, tormenting, silly, angry, caring, abusive (often in the same 5 minute period)

We will never know the horrors he knew in Serbia- We know he was neglected and abused, we can get him to relax when we talk about when he went through, but with him being non-verbal much of the pain remains inside.

This has been the most difficult and most rewarding 3 years of my life

I am blessed to be Jacob's Papa
