Girl, born 2003
HIV, strabismus, congenital cataract (blind in right eye)
Mild to moderate mental delays, FAS, tuberculosis of the lymph nodes
Update March 2013:
Jeanette was exposed to alcohol prenatally. She has issues with impulsivity/understanding consequences. She is well-liked where she is, but needs additional support to succeed in school. It’s recommended that Jeanette would do great with older children whom could help correct her behavior and could model appropriate behavioral for her.
She is very sweet and loves to draw, and color. She pays great attention to detail in her drawings and when she is doing something she like to do like drawing she can sit still for a very long time doing it. She is also very funny and dramatic. She loves to act and dance and sing and make goofy faces and act silly to make people laugh. She could do well in a family but they would need to be prepared for FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome).
