Jak

The department of social services came to Wings of Hope asking them to take in a little boy who had been abandoned at a hospital in Jacmel. While he is clearly disabled, he came with no diagnosis or history. The Wings of Hope staff was told he was 4-years-old, but he was very small, and smaller than a normal-developing 2-year-old. Since he was abandoned social services did not even know his name. The Wings of Hope leadership named him Jak.

Jak seems to have some intellectual disabilities and physical disabilities. He also has seizures. Jak doesn’t walk and doesn’t talk. But, he will make eye contact and likes interaction with others.

Jak gets physical therapy at Wings of Hope and also participates in recreational therapy to help him develop.
