Some Scrapbook Pages of Jared

FUTURE MOST WANTED PAGE: This was an idea from Jared's very first homecare nurse, Pat. She was wonderful with him. Jared always loved having her around. She took very good care of him in a professional and personal way...with lots of tender loving care. Thanks Pat...for giving my boy so much joy!

THE GRIFFIN FAMILY PAGE: This page was done when we were just a family of 3...hubby, myself and Jared. These were the days when I was telling myself that I didn't want any more kids because Jared was a handful....which wasn't what life had in store for me. Jared needed 2 more children came along...Logan & Aidan.

HEAVEN SENT PAGE: This page was made while Jared was in Thomas Jefferson University the NICU. This was back when he still had an endotracheal tube. He got a tracheostomy and gastrostomy tube, I believe at 4 months old. He was in the hospital for 8 months before we brought him home. He really was heaven sent as I discovered over the years....he couldn't have come from no other place other than heaven. Dear God...Thank you for sending him my way.

SCHOOLDAYS PAGE: This page was done after Jared's first year of going to school. He went to Easter Seals School in Media, PA. He loved going to school. He loved circle time and music therapy. Those were his happier times while at school. Later, he developed an attitude because he had to do things he didnt the physical and occupational therapies. He went to school with his nurse, which in this pic was Bernadette. She did a lot with Jared at school...she made him WORK, and Jared didn't like that, so sometimes he would give her the attitude. Oh, what a riot he was! Thanks Bern, for all your hard work and determination with him. As you used to say, "Go, Jared, Go!"

These are just a few of the MANY scrapbook pages I have of him......which are cherished now more than ever before. Well, thanks for looking and until next time...goodnight and God Bless.
