A better life for Jarred

A better life for Jarred

Personal message

I am Jarred's grandmother Debbie.

My first grandson Jarred was born on the 21st of November 2004 to my eldest daughter Jade.

I was so excited for this moment and with Jade being a young mom couldn't wait to embrace the granny journey.

She had a very complicated birthing experience which I won't go into at this time.

Jarred was diagnosed as being completely blind at the age of 1... you can imagine the shock this was to our family.

Today he is blind and quite severely autistic, he is also non-verbal most of the time. Jade and Darren (Jarred's biological parents) and Darren's mom Hilary are his primary carers.

At night he sleeps either with Darren or Hilary inside their small 3 bed-roomed home. While Jade sleeps in a room outside the home with Jarred's 4 year old brother Diego.

They have space at the back of the property they live in to build a two bed-roomed flatlet which would enable them to be together as a family and also allow Jarred freedom to have a room of his own.

Jade has just completed and passed her TEFL course and will be employed by Skyeng to teach Russian people English online via Skype. She needs to have a working environment where Jarred is near her but when he is asleep in the evening she can teach to be able to cover their living costs each month.
