    Sunday’s Child is Janelly, 11

    My name is Janelly. I enjoy making all kinds of art.

    Janelly is a bright, cheerful 11-year-old of Hispanic descent. She demonstrates great talent in painting and drawing and already considers herself an artist.

    She also enjoys dancing and caring for animals. She would love to work with animals someday and is known for her empathy and desire to be helpful.

    Janelly is generally very sweet and is working on her challenges through therapy. She does best with clear boundaries and limits like the ones set for her at school and in her residential program. She would thrive most successfully being the only or youngest child in a home with a mother and father or single mother.


    Janelly will need to visit with her birth family several times a year.
