So glad you are willing to share your feelings and there are many of us who continue to enjoy the amazing story of your son and your family.  It's a story of encouragement, strength, truth, and lessons.  Keep Fighting and continue to promote your drive and the achievements you are all making - both with BEL13VE and Jack's positive attitude and progress.  Best Wishes

Jack is an inspiration, in or out of that  wheel chair.  He has taught a lot of us life lessons, he has taken a rough situation and showed us how to live life.   A lot of people go thru life, they don't live it, not Jack.  Be proud Mama and know your son has touched many, when I hear his name, I smile.

Wishing you a great week in school and in anything else you may be up to! From the TV interview, it seems like you're doing pretty well. You've definitely come far in just a few months. Keep up the great work and keep doing your best. Prayers every night from Montréal. Stay strong, Jack!

Wishing you an amazing week in school! Hope you've been enjoying your time so far in college and making plenty of memories. Can't wait to hear how the experience has been and to hear if you've made progress even with everything hectic going on. Prayers every night from Montréal. Stay strong, Jack!

Wishing you a great week at college! So happy to hear that things have been going well and smoothly. Keep doing your best and working hard; it'll pay off. Moving on to college is something to be really proud of as it is a huge step. Prayers every night from Montréal. Stay strong, Jack!

Way to go Jack , I am so proud of you. I encourage you to take your wings and fly to heights you never thought possible. You have shown the world that a real person with special needs is capable of anything. Remember with God anything is possible. I still remember the day you had your accident at BSM. Your mom is feeling the same way my parents did when my brother went off to college. Tell your mom that is always welcome to visit the school when she has free time. Don't let anything or anybody stand in your way just because you have special needs.

Thank you for sharing your incredible, difficult, journey with everyone.  Your family has been an inspiration to me and to many more I'm sure.  I can almost feel the anxiety you must have knowing you will be leaving Jack in a new place and heading home, even though he is well equipped and confident.  As for the person sitting next to you on the plane, just say the words "left son at college" and if they are a parent who's gone through it, they will more than understand.  When I left my daughter at college (only 5 hours away), I cried for two hours!  It does get better.  Through your journal entries, I feel I have come to know Jack and your family a bit and I am so impressed with Jack's outlook and attitude.  I don't know many 16 year old young men that would have handled this the way Jack has appeared to handle it.  Quite the family you have.  Good luck to you, Jack, and to your family as you enter this new phase of life!
