A true friend to my bird

In honor of his 7th birthday today, I am posting a fabulous story about a fabulous little boy with more compassion, love, and patience than any other seven year old boy I know.

I told you about Jacob once before and told you how we found him. (Long story short: I was looking for a typically developing peer in Little Bird's new school during the summer so that she'd know at least one other kid when school started and someone pointed straight me to Jacob). 

Well, he recently received a special postcard in the mail from the kids' P.E. teacher...

"Dear Jacob,
I wanted you to know how proud I am of the way you help {Bird} during PE. You are so patient and kind with {Bird}. I like how you try your best to show her how to do the exercises and how you help her with our exercises. Keep up the good work! 
Mrs. Wilson"

Isn't that awesome?!!! Jacob is truly one of a kind and we are so so so grateful that he's a part of Little Bird's life. 

Happy Birthday Jacob!! 
Thanks for being such a great friend to my Little Bird!
