Little Mermaid starts walking permanent link   4 comments
Since ONPE and JNE are changing their minds on a daily basis in regard to the completion of the vote count for the first electoral round - today's announcement says probably May 10th, which results in a probable date of either May 28th or June 4th for the second round - I decided to take a little break from my daily newscasting routines and pick up on a truly inspiring, hopeful and joyous story instead.

Read this article published at CNN.com today.
Smiling, blowing kisses and taking small assisted steps, Peru's "miracle baby" celebrated her second birthday Thursday, nearly a year after doctors successfully performed risky surgery to separate her fused legs.

Milagros Cerron, whose name means "miracles" in Spanish, was born with a rare congenital defect known as sirenomelia, or "mermaid syndrome."

The condition is almost always fatal, but Milagros has not only survived but also grown into an alert, vivacious little girl who can pull herself from a seated to a standing position.
Here's to wishing young Milagros a happy second birthday and a normal, healthy, prosperous life as she continues on her miraculous path to a happy future.

That's a really touching story. Thanks for being my landlord this week!

my pleasure, Kelly.
(he is the owner of "Full Metal Photographer" and he rented my little ad space in the sidebar for this week. check it out, it's worth it!)

Hope you will still stop by occasionally even after our renting relationship expires :-)

bienvenidos

It's hard to say. I've been so busy with finals I haven't hardly had time to even write my own blogs or shoot any new pictures (I've been posting out of my archives, which of course had never been posted on the photoblog before).

kelly,
all bloggers are busy with something else, mostly with our paying jobs or family duties. It's a hobby for most people.

I for one, will occasionally check your blog for new photos.

Saludos
