Valerie Update 4/23

As many of you may already know, there was a delay in getting Valerie & her mother's VISAs this past week. Our new goal date for their arrival is Friday, April 28th. Lavonna and Rosy have been in ongoing communication with the family. Lavonna has been working directly with Alejandra helping with getting needed documentation for the VISAs and supplies ready for travel. Rosy has continued her important role of visiting and counseling with the family in the home.
I have begun receiving a number of responses from Carrie's Heart supporters who want to volunteer with and / or donate supplies for the family when they arrive. I have been very touched by the number of responses that have been from parents who themselves have children with disabilities - all reaching out to embrace Valerie and her mother. This strengthens my belief that together we can create change in the lives of Valerie and her family.
