BABY NICOLE ANGELA: New born infant with ‘one eye’ inspires hope, medical treatment

To my readers....this story really hits home for me, because this precious little gift is my VERY OWN God Daughter. I am at a loss for words, but God is Love and Miracle can happen each and every moment! Randy
Effort begins to search for ‘miracle’ treatment’ for daughter of Mark and Emma Hylland, regardless of hurdles and an entire Pacific Ocean between them.
Baby Nicole Angela inspires hope, challenges for medical experts.
Nicole’s medical condition is known as Anophthalmos and is extremely rare, its cause unknown. Parents Mark and Emma have been on a wrenching and emotional roller coaster ever since.

The birth of a new born child is always considered to be the most monumental occasions in the life of any mother and father.
Norwalk community leader Mark Hylland and his partner Emma Naquinez were ecstatic with the birth of their daughter last week.
On November 25th, Nicole Angela was born at the Provincial Hospital in Augusan Del Sur, MindanaoPhilippines.  
Father Mark Hylland was unable to be present for the birth of his daughter since he is in the middle of his finals exams at California State University Dominguez Hills, where he is pursuing Bachelors in Labor Studies.  In just a few weeks he will graduate with honors and will enter CSUDH’s online Negotiations, Conflict Resolution, and Peace Building Master’s Program.
Meanwhile, he is an ocean apart from Emma and this past week’s birth was already full of raw mixed emotions.
After baby Nicole Angela was born, doctors at the hospital experienced difficulty opening her right eye. When they did, they were shocked with what they did not see.  Nicole did not have a right eye ball.
Nicole’s medical condition is known as Anophthalmos and is extremely rare, its cause unknown. Mark and Emma have been on a wrenching and emotional rollercoaster ever since.
Hylland oversees the Bohol/Philippines Coffee Project which he started with the support of “Gus” Velasco, the Santa Fe Springs icon who passed last year. This sustainability project is aimed at fighting poverty and protecting the environment through coffee.
“I discovered much more than coffee in the Philippines. It was there that I met Emma. She was my guide as I searched for coffee. I have learned so much from her, she is an amazing woman and a wonderful mother.”
