I met Jasmine in the hospital when she was a couple of weeks old. She'd been taken to Shand's (UF hospital in Gainesville, FL) by helicopter for evaluation and then brought back to Valdosta. I was a freelance writer, so I was home a lot and able to take her to all her appointments and surgeries. We got her at 3 weeks old and were able to adopt her when she was 3 1/2. She always felt like ours.
Truly an angel.

Jasmine, you are my joy and song. Parenting you is the adventure of my life.
