Kelli brought him home 2-years ago after he was thrust into the foster care system after his biological mother unexpectedly passed away. Kelli and the family have been taking care of Jashia since then.

Kelli first had to become certified emergency foster care to bring Jashia home. She said they knew what they had to do.

Jashia was born pre-maturely in 23 weeks with many issues, including chronic respiratory failure, epilepsy, and asthma. He also has developmental issues and has failure to thrive issues as well. The little child sees numerous doctors for his conditions.
