Anyone want a Jamie update?

Its been awhile since I have done a Jamie update so I thought I would post one.

Our goofy ADHD almost 23 year old young man is doing rather well for himself. He has been out of the Marines since mid February and was accepted into the ranks of the Stafford County Va Deputy sheriffs Department as an Animal Control Officer. He loves his job. He had his firearms test recently and scored the highest he could score! (Thank you USMC!)

He loves driving all over the back roads in his truck catching bats, possums, and raccoons. He did say the raccoons scare him though! Cant say as I blame him

He had a really lovely baby shower on the 12th of May where he proposed to his girlfriend Billie and their baby is due in mid-July. Im really wondering if she will last that long because she is already huge! This is gonna be a big baby. Of course, Jamie was a big baby at 9 pounds even and 24.5 inches long! Poor Billie!

This all goes to show that ADHD isnt a life sentence of doom and gloom. Jamie is a success story. He is doing all a parent could hope for with his life. He left home at 18 and his responsible for everything in his life. He isnt perfect by any means but he is good enough to pass all the background checks that law enforcement

I'm so happy for Jamie. :grin: I have a feeling he's gonna make a great Daddy. You should be proud of him. :bravo:

Yes Sharon...he is living just up the road from In fact, I may be moving up there if the planets align just right. We wont be moving there permanently but we may go up and stay for awhile.

If Billy gets this job he is applying for down here and Cory is out of the house, then we are free to travel.

Wow! What an awesome post to read! Way To Go Jamie! How cute about him proposing at the baby shower, I assume she said yes?? LOL!!

He sounds like he will be a wonder dad and husband.

You give me hope.

Any chance he wants to come mentor a difficult child 1 that's not doing quite so well?
