“We really appreciate just the desire to want to help,” Jacob’s mother Melissa told WHAS. “Folks who don’t know us but just saw the story and are thinking about Jake and reaching out it’s really heartwarming it means a lot.”

“They’re the ones that give us the strength to continue to come out, the desire to bring our son back home,” Shawn added.
