A Strong Will and the Heart to Live
Angelo arrived at the doorsteps of the Queen of Peace Children’s Home as an orphan, malnourished and bone thin with sad eyes. Queen of Peace (QOP) fed him nutritious meals and began his road to recovery. By age 7 he was very active, however he tired quickly and often complained about chest pains and difficulty breathing.
The doctors confirmed the worse. Angelo had congenital heart defect and needed surgery. To prepare for the operation, he had to go through a series of heart-rendering laboratory tests and vaccinations. The most painful necessity was the extraction of 16 infected teeth.
All Children, Inc. supported Angelo’s nearly two-year journey from discovery to recovery. Today Angelo is playful and affectionate. He can keep up with the other children and always has a smile to share.
We love a happy ending. Angelo has been officially adopted by his aunt. She has a low paying job and lives in a two-room apartment. All Children’s field consultant checked on Angelo recently and he is healthy and happy. He told her that he wants to become a policeman or a fireman someday so that he can help others in need.
All Children, Inc. believes that all children have potential and if given a chance can become their community’s next leaders and serve with compassion and understanding.
A better future is yours to give.
