If you don't feel comfortable giving money, I will be opening an Amazon gift registry for Jeannin and John.

Thank you to everyone who provided support to Jeannin and John, me and my family while going through this event.  Everyone got in contact with people they knew who could try to get in contact with them and help them get out of their neighborhood.  God Bless and thank you all.

I thought donors might want an update. Since the move to Florida and finding a place to live, several things have happened. On December 9th, Jeannin graduated from Barry University and received a temporary Physician Assistant licence. As her mom, I should know all the letters behind her name, but I don't. January 2nd, she took the PANCE exam. She passed and is now certified to practice. Exactly 4 months after Hurricane Maria, Jeannin and John welcomed Sebastian James into the world at 8:09 pm. He was a healthy 8 8lbs 6 oz baby and 21 inches long.
Again, we thank you for all of your support! Without you it wouldn't have been possible to rent and purchase furniture for a house and the baby.

Thank you to everyone who has supported Jeannin and John on and off of this web site! Every time I think we'll shut it down, someone else donates. So I guess we'll leave it up for awhile.
Jeannin and John have a home in Saint Petersburg. Thanks to family, friends, and friends of friends on this site, they were able to put down the deposit and first month's rent! The animals seem to be adjusting. The cats have seen squirrels for the first time and the dogs need to be aware of alligators! Jeannin is back at school and will graduate in December. Barry University has completely shut down the Physician Assistant program in St. Croix. Jeannin also tells me that her friends that took them in after the hurricane are still without power :( She's had her prenatal appointments and everything looks good. They've started to get furniture for the baby's room, so I've attached a photo.
AGAIN, thank you for all of your support!
