Angel, Joyce and Ava Visit The GML Shop

Angel, featured in an earlier update on our website, was on hospice for stage 4 metastatic carcinoma but is now in remission. She is thriving and expecting her first baby, a boy! Although this pregnancy was a surprise, Angel just says “I know God has a plan for me.”

In 2019, Angel hosted a ‘Wish’-type dinner for teen foster girls, one of whom was Joyce, pictured above with her baby Ava. They met up for the first time since the ‘Wish’ dinner at the GML Shop, only to learn they live only a couple of blocks from one another in LA. They are excited to set mommy and baby playdates in the near future. GML has an enduring bond with Angel, Joyce and Ava, staying in touch via regular calls, visits and texting.
