From a family who met her in June 2014: “Somebody come get this girl, Angelina. She is such an awesome kid. So happy and smart. She just needs a family and she will thrive. She is 7 and may be in an institution soon. She does not belong there.”
A family who met her in 2011 says she’s the happiest child, always smiling and laughing.
