Denise

This little girl was abandoned in the clinic yard on Tuesday morning.  She was found lying in the gravel beside where the patients wait to be seen.    Lori went out to the yard and saw her.  She began asking the patients if anyone knew who she was with.  Everyone said she had been lying there for hours.  Some remembered what the mother looked like.  We searched and searched but she was nowhere to be found.  She has hydrocephalus.  She appears to be blind.  She eats and drinks well and seems healthy otherwise.

When we took her over I wanted to talk to Deny (another child in the RC with hydrocephalus), but I become busy with something else.  Later that afternoon the nannies were feeding her  Deny went over to see her.  He told the nanny giving her a bath that he was so happy that I had went and found a sister for him.  He has been watching over her and making sure she is okay.  So sweet!  The staff named her this week-Denise.   Deny loves his new “sister”.

    What a sad situation – but what a heart of love little Deny has! Bless you guys as you work with these kids – obviously, the love you and the nannies have and share is working!

    Licia,

    She is a beautiful little girl. Perhaps some day you can meet Madame Dio Pierre (Lionette). She is the person in charge of Mephibosheth where I will be staying before I visit you in Cazale.

    Right now two of the children living at Mephibosheth have hydrocephalus and they are both wonderful children. They both attend school and one is learning to walk. Kensy (15-16 years old boy has never had a shunt and does get bad headaches) has the most beautiful singing voice.

    There is real hope for these children, even in Haiti. Let me know if you want to set up a contact with Lionette as a future reference. Mephibosheth also has a wonderful staff that prays over these children and loves them like family.

    See you soon.

    I have a Neurosurgeon willing to do a case for me in January. He will only do the ETV if it can be done. He does not believe a shunt in haiti is the best option. The hospital would have to approve as well. They have approved all but 1 of our kids so far all with different medical conditions. I wanted to offer it to you if you are in need. I dont know how it works when a child is abandoned.
    I know you work with MAT I think already but thought I would offer, you never know. And the child might not even be able to have the ETV procedure.
    Thanks Stephanie Mueller
