Due to a terrible home situation and severe malnutrition, the commissioner of Gonaives asked me to take custody of a little boy name Youvendjy. Now my son is in first grade and nearly as sassy as I am. He brings a light to my life that I hadn’t known before. We are forever working on paperwork to get him home to the states to visit his grandparents and his proud aunt and uncle. He is learning lots of English in school and at home. I love the opportunity God has given me to live and work in Haiti. I pour my heart and soul into this school because I believe education is the way to break the chains of slavery.
