Jade instantly stole the hearts of anyone who met her with her big rosy cheeks and wide infectious smile. She loved to be sang to and any toys that lit up and played music. She also loved having her hair played with and receiving kisses on her little hands and feet and being told how beautiful she was. Much of Jade’s life was uncertain and there were many times she almost didn’t survive; but she fought with so much strength and determination, beating odds no one ever expected her to do. She was a warrior, who smiled, played, made milestones despite all of her struggles and was an inspiration to all who got to know her and her story. Her time on earth was short but she will be carried in the hearts of many for years to come.
