At only four months old, Shaylee became a victim of child abuse resulting in life-threatening injuries, which resulted in her being separated from her parents. In 2019 Shaylee was rushed to the hospital, and the Doctor's findings revealed that Shaylee endured significant injuries, such as blunt force trauma to her head and blood on her brain. As a result of her injuries, she now has Cerebral visual impairment, post-traumatic epilepsy, muscle disorder, and developmental delays. However, we believe that if those around Shaylee had been knowledgeable about reporting child abuse and neglect and had taken action to report the abuse, Shaylee would not have endured the suffering and pain she lives through daily.
The Shaylee Foundation was created to support and empower kinship caregivers who have taken on the responsibility of caring for children subjected to an unforeseen separation from their primary care provider. The foundation also raises awareness about child abuse and neglect through advocacy and education by providing additional support services and resources for all communities.
