One person in the Dayton area outside our family has been involved in the lives of Ross and Ryan more than any other: Mandy Jacobs Creekmur.

Their contact with her began in 1998 during summer camp run by Centerville Schools for kids who needed some help in the summer months to avoid backsliding on their learning during that long break from school.

She was the classroom attendant for one or both of them for years after, until she left to pursue her bachelor’s and then master’s degrees in special education.

However, she never left from involvement in Ross and Ryan’s lives, because she worked with us privately to care for them in our home.

….and because they were invited to her wedding to Don, where Ross spent 20 minutes on the dance floor with her and by himself in front of the live band!

She is the classroom teacher for a whole room full of special needs children these days. She and Don live next to Cox Arboretum, so we arranged to meet them there. We all had fun!

  1. I would love to see all of you while you’re in town if we could hook up. Liz & her fiance & their little girl live right across the street from Cox Arboretum. Please give me a call.

  2. I love those boys and feel like it is such a blessing for me to have them in my life. They really have taught me so much and so have you guys. Thank you for letting me be a part of your family
