Advocate & Pray: Jocelynn

JocelynnThis newborn caught my eye because of her special medical needs–Jocelynn was born without eyes because of a rare genetic disorder.  According to her profile, Jocelynn’s diagnosis is so rare that all its effects are not yet known, so this precious baby is in need of a family “who is not afraid of the unknown.”  Jocelynn is an affectionate, mild-mannered infant despite her disorder.  Pray with me that she will find a family that will fit well with her developmental needs and her sweet personality.

Jocelynn is listed with Adopt US Kids
USA

Jocelynn does not have any concerns for emotional or behavioral functioning at this time. She behaves like a normal infant. Jocelynn shows appropriate attachments to people. She smiles and babbles to people who she knows and likes. She can tolerate being held by new people for short periods before she wants to be held by someone familiar. She is also able to play on her own in her bouncy reclining chair that sits in her “pack’n play” with toys around her.

Jocelynn has high medical needs due to an extremely rare genetic disorder. Jocelynn was born without eyes, but she has prosthetics in place to help hold the form of her face as she grows. She receives her formula with assistance so that it can be digested safely. Jocelynn is expected to be developmentally delayed in many significant areas, although her prognosis at this point in time is truly unknown. Because her genetic malfunction is so rare, doctors do not yet know what effect is to be had.
