The annual visit
By Laura Sumner Coon
Three years ago, on January 19, as the clinic was closing, Allison Hardin, a member of the medical team, traveled with a doctor to a hut 20 minutes away to help bring Blanca Natalie Rivas into the world. Every year since, it has been a tradition for the family to return and for Allison to give Blanca a check up. On Monday, Blanca made her appearance and showed Allison how she can smile for the camera.
