Jordyn was born with damage done to his brain due to his mom being infected with toxoplasmosis during her first trimester. Doctors told his mom to prepare herself, for he wouldn't live long. That was 15 years ago. His mom and his siblings had other plans for him. His mom refused to accept what the doctors had predicted jordyns life would be like. She began a fight that she didn't know anything about...all she knew was that jordyn was her son and deserved to be treated as such. People told her "put him in a home it's too much for you"...her response was "he isn't a puppy he's my son and I refuse to give up on him"...each negative response she received from people just added more fuel to her fire to give him the best life she could...and that's EXACTLY what she did! He learned to swim. He attended school. He was a little prankster at times...;-) and although strangers didn't understand his language...he taught his family and friends his language of love. He was a happy kid that would leave you feeling so blessed to have witnessed all he had accomplished in his short life given all the odds against him from birth.
In recent weeks he began to suffer more severe effects of the brain damage and it became apparent that jordyns work here was almost done. He lost a lot of weight and became so thin and frail but his smile never wavered. He had the biggest and strongest smile I have ever seen...
On Sept 1 2013 he became an angel and is now flying at the head of the pack...;-)
His family has never asked for a "pity party" and I know that aren't going to now. I know they would appreciate some help to provide jordyn with a proper send off and a celebration of life as magnificent as he was.
I'm hoping to be able to collect enough to help alleviate the financial burden that loosing a loved one brings.
Thank you all in advance for any amount you can give.
