Government says teen's lawyers misled them in abortion case
Our lawyers acted in the best interest of our client and in full compliance with the court orders and federal and Texas law. Her case also went through several legal obstacles before a federal appeals court ultimately granted her the abortion.
But his mother said Jacob has one very special request from anyone who is "inspired to reach out" to help add to his Christmas cheer: cards. Family members say he may not make it to Christmas.
"Jacob loves Christmas", Jacob's father, Roger Guay, told WCSH 6 in Portland. "And we want him to know that Christmas wishes come true and that there are good people who care all around the world".
And since he is hospital bound, his family aims to bring the coming holiday to his bedside next week. He's now at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine.
According to WCSH, Jacob loves homemade Christmas cards.
"Jacob and the other children at the hospital would love it if you upload videos to this Facebook page of your families or friends singing holiday carols".
