Welcome and many thanks for visiting the weblog of Luz Estephanie Machiavello del Castillo. Luz will be returning to Tampa in January 2018. Her appointment at Shriners for 2018 will be January 17. There is a good possibility that Luz' sister, Giuliana, may also accompany her. Luz has grown since we last saw her in March 2017. Hilmer has said that she is excelling in school. Please take note of the article below on the right to see how you can help make her visit more comfortable. You will be able to see updates on Luz and her progress as she proceeds along the path that will again enable her to grow in the confidence and stature of a beautiful little girl. Stay tuned.

Travel Delay for Luz

The latest information from Peru is that Luz arrival in Tampa will need to be delayed until later in the year, possibly late December or even January. There are some identification issues with the US Embassy in Lima that need to be arranged. Luz school teacher has also suggested that it would be best if Luz could finish the current school year, December 20, so she would not need to repeat a grade.
Please continue to consider your support for Luz and contributions to the expense fund set up for her. Information is provided in the right hand margin of this blog. Thanks for your continued interest.
