A forever family found

Greetings to all our friends and supporters.  Thank you so much for the prayers for our students who were writing the exams.  They all feel they did pretty well -- time will tell -- now they just have to wait to get the results back, which will likely take a month or two.  

A couple of months ago, two of our lovely little girls found a forever family here in Haiti.  Our pediatrician here at the hospital had a sister who wanted to adopt some children.  Unable to have their own children, she asked her sister to watch out for some little girls who needed a home.  She found two of our little girls, Rose Nirva and Julienne, who do not have homes to return to.  

They came up from Port-au-Prince to meet the girls and it was love at first sight!  Now, the girls have joined their family in PAP and seem to be fitting right in.  As you can see from the picture of Rose Nirva in their new home, they look so happy.

  And here they are with their new mom...

It doesn't happen often, but when it does we are thrilled to have our little ones find a family here in Haiti to adopt them.  As you can imagine, it was an emotionally difficult day when they came to take the girls with them.  Both of them have been with us since they were just a few months old.  But, we are thankful for more people in Haiti who are willing to love and care for these children and now we can receive others in their place.  We look forward to filling their beds again!!

Thanks for your support that helps us bring hope in so many different ways to the children and youth who come through our doors.  Please continue to pray for Lyse whose health is still so poor.  Pray for Jenny as she travels down to Haiti during the next week.  She will be in Miami for a few days over the weekend, so she hopes to see as many of you there as she can.  Pray for the team from Miami who will also be traveling to Haiti a little later.  And pray for the camp as we have fun together, study the Bible together and make many special memories as we share the good news of Jesus with all those who come.
