I have a handsome grandson named Jordan! He is now eight years old and in the second grade. He has ADHD but Heather (my oldest) took him off of his meds after she found out how bad they are for you. I am so proud of her for doing that. Yes, it means spending a little more time with him to keep him occupied, but it is worth it.

Jordan has a beautiful smile and he is so sweet. He loves to come out and spend the night with his grandma and is always thinking of things for us to do together outside. With my back the way it is, I am not always able to run and play with him but just being out there and watching him, you can almost see his brain ticking. I love him soooo much!

I think back to when Heather carried him. She was so sick throughout the pregnancy and in the hospital a lot. Oh, but it was worth it. I used to go to their house in Adel and almost every time I could see little changes in Jordan. He either had gained weight or length or could do new things. Then they would come out to our house a lot. I remember when he used to do the Army crawl. It was so cute. Put something a ways away from him and off he would go to get it. What a riot! He and Taylor were close in age and it was so fun to watch them together.

Jordan has always been an active child. I've heard that kids like him are sometimes geniuses. It's not that they cannot sit still, but that they are bored and need something to challange them.

Jordan is in soccer each season but other kids are not nice to him. The same thing happens at school and on the bus ride home. It really hurts me to hear that others have picked on him. I'd like to go straighten those kids out. Some day when Jordan has his own company, has shown the world his genius, (like another Bill Gates), those kids will look back and wonder why they were so cruel. Someday his bio-dad will wish he had treated his son better. He doesn't realize what it does to my grandson to be ignored. He also needs a lesson in reality. I'm sure he will wish he'd lived his life differently some day.

Jordan, I love you and am so proud of the young man you have become! Your Grandma, Halfmoon
