Home-Buy Ornaments to Contribute to Jakob’s Therapies and Equipment

Hi.  I am Jakob.  I was born in May of 2011, and I had a brain injury at birth that can make it a challenge for my brain to tell my body what to do.  I am very alert, observant, and fun, and I want to be exploring my world.  My body is still catching up, and I am still learning to walk.  My parents are saving up to buy me a walker, and I am helping them out by selling christmas ornaments.  If you want to buy one, click on the tab under the picture of me lying on the mat that says “buy ornaments.” All money will go towards my therapies and equipment.  If you prefer to send a check, email my mom at clairepage11 at gmail.com and she will send you our address. Thank you, and remember to smile and be grateful for all the wonder in each day!

    Jakob,
    We don’t know each other yet I hope I can come to NJ from Virginia next time you are visiting. I can’t wait to receive your ornaments. I know that you will make remarkable progress. You have a wonderful, supportive, and strong family. Please know my heart and prayers and love is with you.

    Love
    Kristi. (Aka Casey )

    Hi Jakob,
    I’m your almost uncle Matty and I can’t wait to meet you and sing sweet songs for you. I’d love to buy your ornaments and I’ll tell all my teacher friends about you too next week at school. I hope you have a great weekend and tell your parents that I miss them and can’t wait to see them.

    love,

    Jacob – you are adorable and so happy!! Good luck on your journey – we’re all cheering for you!!!!! xxoo

  7. Carol Collier says:

    If you have a child under 3 with developmental delay the local early intervention center should be able to provide therapy no matter what your financial situation is. Sometimes it involves filing paperwork to show you have a financial hardship but income should not stop your ability to access those services. Good luck!

    • Claire says:

      Thank you Carol! We are receiving early intervention services right now, which we are grateful for. There is a limit to what they provide and we are seeing great results with additional therapies that are quite costly so we are doing everything we can to be able to still afford them. Besides these therapies, the early intervention service is not able to cover his equipment and developmentally Jakob is ready to explore the world on his own. We want to make use of every opportunity available to support our son. Again, thanks so much for your feedback!

      I had fun with you this summer too! My mama showed me the pictures you took and they remind me of the fun party. I can’t wait until the next cousin’s party-I will be running around with all the other little tots! Thank you for your contribution to that effort!

      Jakob
