In loco parentis

Now for a positive blog! When my parents passed away, although I lost my biologic parents, I definitely am not lacking any love from moms and dads! First of all, Betty and Gray Petree, parents of my best friend Lynsey. We've known them since high school and they have always been second parents to Jen and me. Whenever I need some parental advice, I know I can count on them to be there! I love you both.
And on 23 November 2006, I married my wonderful husband, Sean, and have been a part of their family ever since. Dody and Garland live in South Boston and Rich and Maureen live in Warrenton. Living in Maryland, we were able to visit both families on a pretty regular basis. It's always great to have a place to go where you can spend time with loved ones. Trips to the lakehouse and to Williamsburg, always a ton of fun!

Not only did I get two more sets of
wonderful parents, I also got another sister, Haley, and a brother, Liam (FINALLY!). They are both hilarious and so much fun to hangout with.

So, although I lost two of the most important people in the world, I'm never alone. I'm surrounded by people who love and care for me like their own child, so incredibly blessed.


  1. Love this and just to let you know... I am your sista too. ;-)

  2. Of course you are! I love you Lyns!

  3. Geez Jess, way to go and forget to mention our other sister. Nice.
