An email from a Jacob Fan

Here's an email we received from one of Jacob's fans in California. It's good to see his legacy lives on in all of you as well as in us!

"Hello Karen and Jason! I believe this is the first time I have actually sent an e-mail to you. I could not let today go without saying a HUGE thank you. Today is my birthday, and when I woke up this morning, I thought to myself, 'how have I changed this year?' I answered that question to myself and the answer surrounded what little Jacob has done for me. He has made me a better mommy, he has made me notice the sky is a bit bluer, the grass is a bit greener, the San Francisco Bay outside our home is more beautiful. I am not sure what distinguishes Jacob (and your entire family) from others in blogland, I just know all of you have made my life different.
Thank you for a birthday present that you never knew you gave. I have had Jacob's "Fan" picture on my blog since you posted it months and months ago. I look at him every day and realize how wonderful the world really is.
Thank you again!"

Here I am ending my birthday night checking on your adorable family and seeing my message. Wow, thanks for making my birthday so special and for things that I can never express in words.

If you think about it, please blow a little kiss to Jacob for me.
