Angelico Comes To School

By Sharon Doherty | Project Leader

School Is Fun
School Is Fun
Ángelico was born on  May 10, 2012 (Mexican Mother's Day), making him 7 years old. 
He has two siblings, both hearing, a brother 4 years old and a sister 3 years old. He is the only one in his family who is Deaf. He was diagnosed when doctors did newborn hearing screening. Ángelico was not ill at birth but was postterm.
He has had hearing devices since a very young age but they hurt him and he prefers not to use them.
The economic situation of the family is very difficult. Ángelico's mother explains that the whole family depends solely on her husband for support. He goes everyday to the place outside the City of San Miguel de Allende (believed to be near Palo Colorado) where the garbage service delivers the trash every day. He collects metal, plastic, paperboard and anything salable. The family's income depends only on how much his father can collect and then sell at the end of each week. The family lives in the Rancho Viejo community, in a house that Ángelico's mother's family lends to them.
Despite coming from poverty, Ángelico is a happy child, He has a brightness in his eyes and in his smile. He likes to wear costumes and dance in community celebrations. He was proud to have his mother show a video on her phone of his dancing performance.
Please help sponsor Ángelico so he may continue to come to school and receive an education in Mexican Sign Language.
