New Baby at Dories Promise

Josue Alvarez

DOB: Unknown Aprox. Age:  6 months old.

Date of entry: 05/11/12

Last week we received a new baby boy, Josue. He was abandoned on the streets when he was 2 days old. Before being placed at Dorie's Promise he was living in the hospital due Gastrochisis, a birth defect in which an infant's intestines stick out of the body through a defect on one side of the umbilical cord. This condition can lead to breathing problems and a difficult time with their bowels. We are very thankful that Dr. Castro is here to help us care for Josue and to monitor his growth.
