We had some good news regarding this sweet boy in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa. We've been waiting for employees at his orphanage to get x-rays of Gabriel for a doctor in Colorado that will be considering his case. We recently got news that they finally have the x-rays and we should be receiving them soon. We're anxious to get this little guy the care he needs.

We have been asked to look for surgeons willing to place G-tubes for several children with CP in an orphanage in Haiti. These children are all having extreme difficulties eating and we're hoping that this will help them be able to grow and thrive. We have some surgeons willing to take on these children, but are currently waiting to hear back from hospital administration.

Little Therry has full approval from a wonderful hospital in MN and will be traveling there with his mother for heart surgery in the coming months.
We have the pamphlets for the cleft campaign completed and Lori from RHFH was kind enough to translate them for us. She would like someone else to proof read it though, so if there are any fluent Kreyol speakers out there that would be willing to proof read a small, two page document please email us and let us know. medicaladvocacyteam@live.com
Thank you for your continued prayers and support!
