  1. I know Jaki! Her family were members of our church. We knew of her before her parents were actually able to pick her up. I think there was a lot of waiting and anxiety before her adoption which seemed to take a long time. I remember the first time she told her shoebox story and I tear up thinking about it. I packed many a box and wondered who really received the box and did it make a difference. Her story was inspiring. She and her family moved away a few years ago. Send my love and good wishes to she, her brother and Mom and Dad. St. Lukes in Denton, Md. miss she and her family. Hope they have received many blessings since they left us.
