Jacob was born on May 20th, 2000 in Taclobon, Leyte, Republic of the Philippines. He was abandoned to the orphanage where he grew up - becoming the oldest child there before he blessed us by joining our family.

Jacob lived his dream - namely to become part of a family.  He joined us in 2012.  He lived big!  He loved us and he still loves Jesus - .  He's with him now. His story begins with the earliest post on this blog.  Its a hard, beautiful, funny and inspiring story of how Jesus used an orphan from the Philippines to tell his story.  We hope you take the time to read it -you won't be the same.
