Jacob’s entry said: “When I learned to walk again was the happiest day of my life.I worked with a pitching coach 3 times a week and was able to try out for my high school team in February. No one, including myself, thought this was a possibility, but I learned that with family, friends, prayer, hope, and hard work that all things are possible. This motor accident cost me a lot, but it also taught me a lot. It taught me that tragedy can happen, but I can overcome adversity.”
