My Joyful Tornado

Hello everyone! This is Jb our 8 year old grandson. He was born with Down Syndrome and was diagnosed with Autism at age 6. My husband Nick and I have been taking care of him for several years. He is the reason I am so passionate about making great fudge. We needed a way to give Jb the best care possible while still being able to spend a lot of time with him so we prayed about it for a while and one day I realized while selling fudge to coworkers that this was the answer to our prayers. Here we are 101 flavors later.  We just started Fudge101.net a little over 2 weeks ago. We are so grateful for each and every order that has been placed although we find ourselves checking in on it several times a day hoping to see a new order (like silly little school kids).  Anyway about this little guy… if I had to tell you one thing about Jb it would be nearly impossible. I would be in agony trying to decide what to tell you because Jb has been through more in his 8 short years of life then most of us have ever had to face. Ironic he was born on  National Down Syndrome awareness day (March 21). He had open heart surgery at 2 1/2 months old. Several other surgeries followed that one. Jb always had a smile for anyone that walked in the door of his hospital room. I call him my “joyful tornado”. He is an absolute ((2)) hands full! Like most little boys he is at his highest energy level from around sun-up until approximately sunset. No off button. He is at his happiest when he is playing with his sisters Adriana 11 and Kaylee 5 or visiting the animals on our good friends farm. The donkey (Buddy) is his favorite.  He is for the most part nonverbal but he sure has a lot to say. He and I have a special bond. We have a way of communicating that’s all our own. His future has endless possibilities. I’m so excited to watch him grow and learn.  I have a feeling Fudge101.net is going to help him reach his full potential. Lets get started. I’m always ready to create a new fudge flavor. Our fudge is not your average fudge. This is silky smooth fudge that will melt in your mouth and make your tongue come out and lick your ear! Guaranteed! Every bite!
