Edited for clarity; the park cutscene implies this.
It's unclear what became of Jennifer, but it is implied that she ended up surviving until adulthood.\\

Eventually, Wendy saved Jennifer from Gregory and let her come to the orphanage. In the orphanage, Jennifer had a hard time fitting in, and, due to her chronic inability to stand up for herself, got pushed around by the other orphans, as well as the adults who worked there. Eventually, the adults disappeared for reasons unknown, and the children formed a cruel, despotic governing body called the "Aristocrat Club", which issued [[TitleDrop "Rules of Rose"]] that were akin to laws. Thus, the Orphanage became something like LordOfTheFlies. At some point between Jennifer's arrival at the orphanage, and the disappearance of the adults, a number of orphans who never appear on-screen would go missing.\\

It's also unclear as to what most of the game, with the airship and all that, really was, but there are some theories, chief among them, is that they happened more or less as they appear, save that they took place in the orphanage, and not on an airship, the imps and mermaid never existed, and Jennifer was the same age as the other children, since they had occurred in the past. This theory also holds that, the events of the game represent now-grown-up Jennifer reliving, and coming to terms with, her memories, with all of them appearing magical and twisted due to a combination of Jennifer being to young to understand everything at the time, and good-old-fashion TraumaInducedAmnesia.

The two of them eventually find a butterfly, but the Aristocrats call it ugly, so they go and find another one. The Aristocrats still get angry, calling the butterfly worthless, and Amanda shoves a dead rat in her face, causing her to pass out. When she awakens, she finds a letter from Amanda, telling her to go to the airship's roof. There, Amanda apologizes for doing the torture.\\

The scene with Wendy and the Imps takes place in a courtYARD, not a courtHOUSE. Google the differences if you must. The summary at the end was woefully incomplete, and so I added a substantial bit to it. Finally, the two theories presented struck me as essentially identical, so I combined them.
Jennifer sees Wendy in the courthouse, but has to defeat several Imps before the door opens. In the courthouse, Wendy tells Jennifer that an important Aristocrat Club meeting is about to take place, and gives her a storybook. When Jennifer finishes reading it, she sees that Brown and Wendy are gone.\\

Jennifer's parents and several other people died in an airship crash, of which she was the only survivor. She ended up on Gregory's farm, and as Gregory had just lost his son Joshua to an illness, he dressed Jennifer up in boy's clothes, changed her name, and used her as a ReplacementGoldfish. Soon after, she met Wendy, a girl from the orphanage. They began to exchange notes, and had a semi-romantic relationship. Their favourite game was "Prince and Princess", and Jennifer didn't mind being the Prince.\\

To cope with how the children treat her, Jennifer made friends with a dog named Brown, making Wendy jealous and turning her into a PsychoLesbian. However, that doesn't tell the whole story. There are two theories about the plot:\\

'''THEORY 1''': Everything did happen, but not as you saw it. The Aristocrats weren't really in charge, there was no airship, Wendy had risen to the top of the Club (unknown to Jennifer, and Jennifer was the same age as possibly all the other characters (specifically Wendy).\\kids), having used the rumour of a Boogey-man figure named "Stray Dog" to scare the other children into following her, saying that the children who had vanished were kidnapped by Stray Dog. Rather than have Jennifer rule the club at her side, she used Jennifer's gift, a teddy bear (also named Joshua). To cope with how the children treat her, Jennifer made friends with a dog named Brown. This made Wendy, who had been described as chronically lonely before meeting Jennifer, violently jealous, and she formed a plan to get Jennifer to like her again (apparently unaware that Jennifer can love both a dog and a human at the same time). Her plan was thus:\\ 1. Issue a Rule of Rose stating that Jennifer is to be killed, and her body given to the Aristocrat Club. 2. Change the Rule, stating that instead Brown must be killed. 3. Reveal herself as the leader of the Club, as thus the person who prevented Jennifer's death.

'''THEORY 2''': Everything happened in the past. The entire game is AllJustADream which Jennifer uses to recover her memories. Alternatively, the game is Adult!Jennifer revisiting and re-experiencing her past so she can accept it and move on. Everything is weird and distorted due to TraumaInducedAmnesia and how she saw things as a child.

'''THEORY 2''': Everything What Wendy didn't count on, was that Jennifer wouldn't see it that way, and would in fact, despise Wendy for what she had done. In a CMOA, Jennifer calls out not only Wendy for being a cruel despot, but every other person in the Club for following her. The Stray Dog legend was determined to be a lie, and the members of the Club decided that Jennifer was right, and she should lead them now. What they didn't know, was that Wendy had been using Gregory's insanity to control him by posing as his dead son Joshua (which also explains why Gregory, in his obsession, never came looking for Jennifer). She had been conditioning him (in one document, a witness describes it as "dog training gone horribly wrong") to kidnap, kill, and bury children from the orphanage, presumably, although not definitely, ones who had displeased Wendy in some way. Because Gregory was a farmer by trade, the disappearances were not connected with the freshly-dug soil on his property. Thus, Stray Dog was real.\\ \\ When the Aristocrat Club overthrew Wendy, she brought Gregory to the orphanage and had him kill all the orphans besides herself and Jennifer. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone In a moment of horrible regret,]] Wendy apologized to Jennifer for what she had done, and handed her a gun Gregory owned, telling Jennifer to use it to stop him. Once she had done so, Gregory killed Wendy. Jennifer, instead of firing on Gregory as one might assume, gave the gun to him, and he turned it upon himself in a sudden moment of clarity. His final words were, "I'm sorry, Joshua."\\ \\ It's unclear what became of Jennifer, but it is implied that she ended up surviving until adulthood.\\ \\ It's also unclear as to what most of the game, with the airship and all that, really was, but there are some theories, chief among them, is that they happened more or less as they appear, save that they took place in the orphanage, and not on an airship, the imps and mermaid never existed, and Jennifer was the same age as the other children, since they had occurred in the past.
