Cusco, Peru - Sheila Wolfson, coordinator / translator:I think Gonzalo was the friendliest,most outgoing and affectionate child we saw during our two weeks in Cusco. Gonzalo was there to have a revision on his cleft lip surgery that was performed by our host, Mario Cornejo several months prior to our visit. During their wait, it was obvious that he and his mom had a very loving relationship. Although Gonzalo was missing an arm from birth, he did not let it stop him from accomplishing what he wanted to do.
I'd like to add a special thanks to Klutz, the children's publishing company, for donating many of the arts and crafts supplies used to occupy the kids while they waited for their life changing surgeries. They are the best!!!
