Ten

Jackson turned 10 on January 17, 2016. He opted not to have a birthday party this year. Instead, he’s going to a professional wrestling show with Max next month.

Jackson’s birthmother and I exchanged text messages on Sunday. I always feel awkward trying to express how I feel about her and the incredibly difficult decision she made 10 years ago. Words just don’t seem adequate. She made us all a family. I do love her very much. I honestly think about her everyday, even though I am not terribly good about communicating outside of Facebook.

Here are some pictorial highlights. Ten years of Just Jackson.
