Go Blue Day for the tiniest victims

BEAUMONT-by Jennifer Gordy

Most of the time, three year old Charlie Janeaux needs a walker made for a child to get around.  Charlie's mother, Chelsee Janeaux, says,  "They told me to tell my baby goodbye.  They told me to give my baby to the Lord." Charlie was less than a month old in 2011, when he suffered 52 injuries at the hands of his father. There were fractures to his skull.. and brain damage that left Charlie blind in one eye. He has limited vision in the other eye.  All of his ribs were broken. His father is serving a 40 year sentence for nearly killing his son.

Janeaux says, "We lived with five other adults and no one suspected that this was going on.  No one would have even thought  that this would have happened to our family." Charlie's mom says it's been a long three years to get to this point. Janeaux says, "He's great.  We have speech, physical, and occupational therapy come to the house twice a week and he's walking with his walker and starting to walk on his own. "

Charlie led Wednesday's "Go Blue Day" parade down Main Street in Beaumont. His family was with him to promote child abuse prevention.  Charlie was recognized a couple of years ago. But, at today's event, it was Baby Faith Mason. Shari Pulliam, Media Specialist for The Texas Department of Family and Prevention Services in Jefferson County, says, "She was the one month old child from Port Arthur that was severely abused.  We didn't know if she was going to live or die. She is doing very well in a foster home in Houston." Baby Faith Mason.  Charlie Janeaux.  They're why the motto "Protect our children. Protect their future" is on display.  Lives forever changed a community always ready to offer support.
