About Josselyn: Josselyn is an only child and her father works as a janitor making only about $125 a month. Josselyn and her parents live with her maternal grandparents and most of what they own was given to them secondhand. Josselyn was born with a normal birth weight but came to us severely malnourished and behind in her development. We are hoping to see her learn how to walk while she is with us! She is adjusting to life at Casa Jackson and we have been seeing her cute smile more and more lately.
UPDATE: Josselin, who will become a big sister in September, returned home with her very happy mother on May 19, weighing a healthy 17 lbs.
