Janasia is a beautiful 3-year-old African American girl. She has had many challenges in her short life. Janasia needs a family who is qualified to provide the total care that she needs. She receives 20 hours of nursing care a day, but is qualified for more. Janasia also receives physical and occupational therapy through Birth to Three each week. Her potential developmental progress is not known at this time.
Janasia responds well to touch and massage. She will often times smile when someone talks to her.
Janasia’s typical schedule involves receiving medications several times a day and G-tube feedings every four hours during the day and every eight hours at night. She suffers from seizures and some cortical blindness and deafness due to significant brain damage at birth. She also has a tracheostomy and is on an apnea monitor.
Janasia’s central and peripheral vision is compromised but she is able to see some things at a 60 degree angle in stripes. She is at the beginning stages of being able to pull herself up and roll over and use her arms to steady herself on the floor.
Janasia can bring great joy to a family who has the skills necessary skills to care for her high needs. She does need to stay in the state of Wisconsin and it would be beneficial to have a two-parent home as Janasia requires full time care. A potential family would also have a strong support system in place to help them.
