Comment: Baby Jacob,I know you must know and feel how much you are loved. Not only loved by your Mom and Dad, but all the others around you and by a lot of people that have never even seen you, except for pictures. You are in my prayers daily, as well as prayers for your Mom and Dad and your extended family and friends. You are one of God's miracles and I know that he has wonderful plans for you. Please hang in there and my prayers and best wishes are with you always and especially for your upcoming heart surgery this week. I love you and tell your Mom and Dad I love them too. Love and lotsa (((((HUGS)))),reba (Spencer's Mom)

Comment: Hi Jacob - We've never met but maybe we will some day. I work with your Grampa and he has shared your journey with us. You're most definitely one of God's great miracles. I pray for you when you cross my mind or tug at my heart. You have touched so many people, Jacob, and reminded us of what's really important in life. Now you're making me cry at work and no woman looks good w runny mascara; you'll learn this for yourself later when you're breaking all the ladies hearts! Your friend, Andrea

Ruthie keeps me posted but thought I'd let you know we're praying here in Maine. We never know what the Lord has planned for us. Take care and accept these many blessings from the Lord one day at a time. Keeping you all in my prayers. Nancy

Jacob is doing AMAZING, and Jason and I are finding our new normal. The love and support we feel from all has kept us going. And we can't thank you enough for that. I guess The Beatles said it the best..All You Need Is Love! Well, a little science mixed with prayer doesn't hurt either.

Can I tell you that I don't think there's a super hero or hollywood stunt man out there that holds the amount of courage you have within. You and your family inspire me to no end. You're very much on the radar now and I'm going to enjoy watching you grow right here. Peace and Love-Dan

Comment: Hello everyone. I am a friend of Shari's. I just read your pages and am quite teary! I just wanted to say congratulations and I'm not surprised. I just remember when Shari 1st told my Mom and I about you and the prognosis I had the strongest peace in saying don't believe everything you hear- no one can know and had a peace and feeling that the story wasn't over. God uses the weakest, the least of these all the time to show HIS power and might and LOVE. You are an amazing testimony of all that! Not one of us knows how many days we have here on earth... but I stand in BELIEF with you that God DOES still do miracles! He is with you every step of the way and I pray His peace over you and your continued growth in faith. God's Blessings on you all!

You still have those amazing big eyes that melted all our hearts here. It is so good to hear that you are growing so big. I will keep praying for you and can't wait to hear what you are up to. Give mom and dad a hug from all your nurses at St. Joes, and make sure they give you a kiss from me!XOXO,Debbie, RN
