Jesse enjoyed Easter eggs and lollipops while hanging out with friends on Easter Sunday. We had a great time celebrating all that Easter means alongside these precious children, and are so grateful for Jesse and the picture of hope that he is!

We painted with Jesse recently. He was pretty uncertain about whether he liked to paint at first, but he eventually came around and enjoyed making polka dots on the canvas!

Jesse danced along to the guitars as we sang Christmas songs to him and his friends! He enjoyed every minute of it. We also celebrated Christmas by making homemade ornaments with each of the children, and proudly hung Jesse’s masterpiece on the tree!

We just celebrated fall with a festival for the kids, and they loved it. Jesse wasn’t thrilled with his Elmo costume’s hat, so he chose not to wear it during the party, but he had a good time nonetheless! He sat so still while he had a pumpkin painted on his face, and he enjoyed going to all the different booths.

We just had the opportunity to celebrate Jesse turning 10 years old! Jesse is a special little boy, and it’s our joy to celebrate him. He loved eating chocolate cake at his party, and he’s a big fan of his new stuffed animal toy! Knowing and loving Jesse is a privilege.
