About Javier: Javier’s mother had a lack of prenatal care and education, causing him to be born with a low birth weight of only 5 lbs. Javier is an only child. His mother is 22 and is staying with him at Casa Jackson to provide him with constant care. The father is not present, but the grandparents have generously offered to financially support Javier and make sure he gets proper care and schooling. The grandparents also take care of and financially support 8 other grandchildren.
