Jane is seven years old and is missing being in school with her teachers and friends this year. She makes her family laugh at her jokes and we love her hugs but watch out when she’s hungry or her schedule gets shifted. 🦁 We love you Jane and are happy to honor you and all those rocking that extra 21st chromosome.
