About Angelica: Angelica is an impossibly tiny, beautiful baby who has a twin at home. Her devoted mother visits her every day to hold her, hug her, talk to her, and- importantly- give her the breast milk that is helpingher recover so quickly! Although Angelica arrived at 4 months old weighing only about 4 lbs., she has been a lively little baby from the start. She is quick to smile and will even try and ‘sing along’ with volunteers. After only a month in Casa Jackson, she’s more than doubled her weight. Her mom is eager to bring Angelica home to join her older siblings, who often make the trip to CJ with their mother and ask our staff how long until they can bring their baby sister home to play.
