About Jenifer: Jenifer was with us last year and has now returned. Her parents were concerned that she was not gaining weight and growing as she should for her age. She is only at 77% of her optimal weight for height. She is a sweet little girl and beginning to adjust to being at Casa Jackson again. Jenifer is moderately malnourished, but with the specialized medical care she receives from our nurses and staff, as well as the support and education her family is receiving, we hope to see her healthy and on her way home again soon.
UPDATE: Jenifer went home on April 24, 2012 at a healthy weight of 13.2 lbs.
