1. Jake's Declaration of Independence


Update: June 2009 (The result)




----------------------------------------------------------------



Jacob Grys is a miracle! He was not expected to live after birth. But live he did. He is a tiny child that is full of life. Jake was born with dwarfism caused by osteogenesis imperfecta.

Yes, he has brittle bones. Yes, he breaks his bones every month. But his difficulties are mainly caused by his dwarfism. He depends upon his family for everything. Though he has above average intelligence and bursting personality, he can not get a drink, go to the bathroom, shower, turn on a light, and worst of all, he can not open a door so if the house would catch on fire he can not escape. His family (adoptive parents and 6 siblings) have always thought they would just care for him forever, but...When the therapist at Easter Seals came to their house to nominate them for Extreme Makeover Home Edition, she showed them that he could be independent with the correct changes and additions to their home.

So they have discovered it is a disservice to Jake to make him depend on them. He needs to be able to care for himself. His family is now consumed with finding a way to make him INDEPENDENT!! You can help.
