Angel is doing well and Eva is coming soon!

Pol has limited access to the internet now, so news is spotty, however, he sent some pictures of Angel in her casts and she seems to be doing really well! She's got big smiles. She gets her casts off next week and then will be in bandages for a while. Pol located another family in Dallas who were neighbors to his family in the Philippines 10 years ago! Pol and Angel have been spending a few days a week with them too. He says that it's been fun to see them again and he has really enjoyed the company and friendship of all the people he's met and spent time with.

Eva's ticket has been purchased thanks to so many kind donations! Her coming to Dallas for Christmas will be a wonderful gift for this family. She arrives December 2nd and Angel's next surgery is December 8th.

On December 9th, the Children's Craniofacial Association (based in Dallas) will be hosting a Holiday Party at Medical City Hospital. Children from all over come to eat cookies, make Christmas crafts and sit on Santa's lap. It's a wonderful party. Many of the Apert Syndrome families from out of state plan their annual check up appointments during the week of the party so that they can be in Dallas to see all their friends and let the kids play together. This year will be especially nice because all the families and kids will get to meet the Toribio family.

Goal for helpbabyangel -
Paying Angel's diapers, bandages, formula, etc, and
to bring Angeleah's mom, Eva,
to U.S. for the surgeries (This doesn't include money donated earlier that was
used for Angel's and Pol's Visas and for their travel
to Manilla to get the VISAS. )
