Financial summary

















Dear Friends,

Here is the information about the last trip to Philadelphia . There is more photos than text because I will keep writing about Rosas's progress, challenges and the new programs that become part of her history.

The last time she could only do it once. This time Rosa walked everyday to the institution and back, with no problems.

(More than 1km).

Our friend Miguel joined us on this trip to help looking after Rosa during the conference days for parents.

For the first time Rosa traveled without wearing nappies, she didn't wear them on during the flight either.

She looked concerned because of this change. There were a few small “accidents” but in general it all went very well.




In a waiting room of one of the institutes, with a German family.


Rosa finished a small poetry book during the last period. It was very rewarding for everyone at the institute.


As you can in this photo: Rosa is a lot more expressive.



At Ernesto's workshop. Rosa will have a new type of breathing masks.

At Rumiko's office, who designed the new physical program for Rosa .

Playing with Maria is always the best. Rosa walked a lot this time,
here you can see us looking for the Chestnut Hill Museum.

Thank you very much for all the support given. We are all working very hard on the new program.

Some things have changed, some are just the same. Rosa is motivated because during the Summer of this year (2009) she will get her second Honey Moon, which is a 2/3 months brake from the program. During this Honey Moon period she will be able to show us how she feels without the therapies. It will be the moment of truth where we will see, clearly, all we have achieved and all that we still have to do.

With our best wishes,

Elke, Darinel, Maria and ROSA.
