This child will melt your heart. He lights up the room with his huge smile! We call him lover boy bc he likes to hug and cuddle all the time with everybody. He is a very calm boy for the most part. But very happy. He has been through a lot in his short life, for those of you who did not know us a few years ago, watch the video, it will fill you in.

Jacob means to: supplant” or “overcome” He is very appropriately named. He is a strong little boy who is going to have an amazing story to tell of God’s miracles and His provision.

The video hasnt been updated since he had surgery. His surgery went well but he still has to go in to be checked every 6 months for his heart. At any time he could have to have another surgery. Jacob's next appointment is in a few weeks. Please pray his heart is healthy and that God would continue to heal him daily!


  1. I had forgotten about the heart thing, but I do remember praying for him! I hope his next appointment goes well. He is so precious!

  2. I love that picture of him driving the truck! Way too cute....he is one special little boy!! The video was precious. I don't even like hot dogs and I wanted to eat him up in that little costume...YUMMY!! We are praying for you guys. Love ya lots.


  3. I cried all over again watching his video. And, yes, he is the cutest little man ever! :o) We will definitely be praying for good news at his next appointment. Miss you guys!! Can't wait for you to get back!
    Love you,
