      Angelica,

      Congratulations on your success with the Angelica doll! As you mentioned in your video, your daughter Sophia had concerns regarding her hair. I had those concerns growing up too. Like you, it wasn't until I was much older that I learned self acceptance for my natural features and God given qualities. I realized they were beautiful and I was wonderfully made. You're right! That's what I want my girls to know and believe at a much earlier age. There is so much more that is needed in our community for women and girls in general to bolster self confidence, love, respect and acceptance for who we were created to be, but this is a wonderful step in that direction. Thanks for making the leap! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you continue through the process. Keep up the great work!

      You just keep on with this most desperately needed project and if you ever need more support I for one am here for you. This is way, way, way overdue the motion picture industry has really done a thorough job on us and especially our females.

      God bless you,

      Charles W. Wright

      Congrats! BTW was wondering if you considered adding a reward which is to send a doll to a needy family. I don't have a little one to give one to but would definitely up my pledge if you would send a doll to a child who would appreciate it -- and even better if he/she doesn't get many toys otherwise.
