Jadyn is a lively bi-racial (Caucasian and Puerto Rican) 8-year-old who is full of spirit, has a huge heart and is very curious. She loves being around other children, listening to music and playing with sensory toys. She also enjoys watching football and the Backyardigans. She is looking for a family who has experience caring for a child with significant needs.
Jadyn has been diagnosed with hydrocephaly, cortical atrophy, cerebral palsy and significant developmental delays along with hearing and vision deficits. She also has a tracheotomy tube and uses a ventilator when sleeping. Jadyn does not communicate verbally but she does know some basic sign language to communicate her needs and is very capable of expressing her emotions. Through all these hardships, Jadyn has been making a lot of progress with the support of her foster parents and appropriate services.
Jadyn regularly attends school and receives specialized educational programming, including speech, occupational and physical therapy. Jadyn is also making progress in her self-help skills; she can now feed herself with a spoon, walk with a walker and can sit up on her own. She has the fire inside to succeed and works very hard to overcome obstacles.
Jadyn would benefit from family members who are very flexible and are willing to put their whole hearts into helping her to succeed to her fullest potential. She would do well being an only child or with having other siblings. With a family who is willing to put the time, effort, and love into Jadyn, she can continue to make great progress.
