Jesus is often described as a “Miracle Baby” by his caregivers. He communicates by groans, cries, and minimal eye movements. Jesus receives many types of therapies including, baby yoga and supported standing. Jesus can become over stimulated when constantly touched, and this can cause him discomfort. He can be soothed by secure cradling movements, soaking in warm baths, or receiving a baby massage. During his extended sleeping periods, Jesus is most comfortable encircled by pillows, however is frequently awakened by seizures. Jesus is non-ambulatory and is unable to speak. Jesus responds minimally to sound and sights. He has created bonds with his primary caregivers, recognizing them by their scent and their touch. Jesus continues to function as a newborn requiring a lot of nurturing and hands on care from an adoptive family. He requires a family experienced in caring for a medically needy child or one willing to be trained to provide the ongoing daily care for Jesus. An interested family will need to be willing to come to New Jersey for visitation and training.
