Jessica and Jordynn live at the house of Jessica’s mother, Coleen, and her husband, Denny Sweazy, on Rogue Hollow Road. Jordynn, born July 2, 2008, is one year old this month. Jessica has lost most of her “baby fat” gained during pregnancy last year. She wants to continue to be attractive to Tommy Fischer, who is the baby’s father. Also a young high-school-aged person, he is showing interest in other girls of their group. Coleen helps out a lot with the baby, and Jessica is trying to reconcile herself to being a 17-year-old with an infant to care for. Jessica enjoys getting out with her old friends from high school when possible.
