Jamie Higgins

Jamie is a 10 year old resident of Woodburn.  She lives with her father, Jeff, her 15 year old brother, Ryan, and her five year old brother, Ian.  Jamie’s mother, Lauren, died of cancer four months ago and the family is grieving.  Jamie misses her mother terribly and is having a difficult time adjusting to the changes that come from her mother’s death.  She sometimes feels guilty participating in the activities she’s enjoyed in the past because she believes that she should ALWAYS be sad.  Jamie’s friends have encouraged her to get involved with some of her former activities.  One of the things Jamie had always loved to do is to play soccer. Jamie is featured in The Kids on the Block script about Bereavement.
