PHOENIX — Jo and Brain Jones are describing the end of their 2019 as, “a little surreal.”
That’s because their non-profit Jacob’s Hope, named after their late adopted son is now caring for their very first baby.
“It’s beyond exciting, scary you know to put everything into place that we’ve been working on for over three years,” said Jo Jones, Co-founder and Board President of Jacob’s Hope.
Their non-profit now with their inaugural baby, is dedicated to providing a unique set of care to babies that have been exposed to drugs during gestation and are experiencing withdrawal symptoms once born. The baby they’re caring for now was born exposed to the prescribed drug methadone.
“Our baby is withdrawing from methadone, a prescribed drug, not a street drug. Mom is very active in his program here she has worked with our staff, in fact two of the nursers are here with her today and teaching her care techniques,” said Brian Jones, Executive Director of Jacob’s Hope.
