Congratulations and Happy Birthday Jaclyn!!!

It is hard to believe our sweet Jaclyn is going to be 20 and has graduated from High School. She will be attending the Young Adult Program in the Fall and she is very excited about it.

We let Jaclyn go with us to order her cake so she could pick colors. Every day for 2 weeks all she talked about was picking up her cake. Probably about 20 times a day she asked to go pick it up. Maybe even more!!! She was soooo excited.

See the cookies on the side? My dear friend and neighbor Ann made those. She made several kinds and they were SCRUMPTIOUS!!!

Jaclyn was excited to blow out her candles. She even wanted to help light them!

Jaclyn and her friends have a lot of fun as you can see!

Pictures tell alot. (I actually forgot to take pictures of people until the end.) All of Jaclyn's pictures just make me tear up. She has come a long way for only given a 2 week life span. Jaclyn has been a blessing in our lives. I am thankful that God has given her to us and the lessons I have learned because of her.

Awwwww...too fun. I love the fact that she was so excited about her cake.....she's a girl after my own heart. I LOVE birthday cakes! She's such a special young lady and you and Jack are the best parents ever for her. I love that God has given her a miracle.....and you guys too..that she was 'supposed' to only live two weeks....and 20 years later..here that darling baby is! :) Praise God!

I love that you put pictures up of this. I think my favorite part was seeing Jaclyn interact with all her friends. See mom...she doesn't think she misses anything. She loves what she is able to accomplish. The world may have certain expectations, but Jaclyn has far exceeded her own and what any doctor or therapist may have held for her, and she is so content and happy with where she's at. xoxo, erin
