This little girl was abandoned yesterday in the clinic yard.  She was found laying in the muddy water by where patients wait to be seen.  Everyone said the lady with her said she was going outside to buy her some food.  She never returned.  The lady with her called her “Jenny”.  She looks at us when we call her this.  She is unable to stand or walk.  She can sit if she is leaning up against something. 

When a child is left like this, we call the local judge.  The responsibility is on the mayor of our section.  The mayor’s office is in the next major town.  So our local judge always comes and helps us with these cases.  He lives close and comes 24/7 whenever we need him—free of charge.  Since we have had this happen before we know what we need to do.  First we have to take a picture of the child just like we found them.  We are not suppose to touch them until the judge arrives.  He makes papers and then talks with those that were a witness or saw the child before they called us.  When I called him I told him we had to pick her up as she was laying in the mud and he was okay with that.

Jenny is doing well today in her new pillowcase dress.  She is eating, laughing and enjoying life in the RC.  We will post her picture around and see if we can find someone who knows of her family.  If we cannot find anyone we will try to place her in a orphange.

James 1:26-27 (The Message)

 26-27Anyone who sets himself up as “religious” by talking a good game is self-deceived. This kind of religion is hot air and only hot air. Real religion, the kind that passes muster before God the Father, is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption from the godless world.

    Wow. That picture of her laying on the ground is just heartbreaking. 😦 SO thankful she is with you, and she is already looking so much better in that last picture. Some RHFH lovin’ will do her wonders! Praying for her and for God to place her in the best situation for her future. Thanks for being there for kids like her!

    You don’t know me, but I follow your website. I am a children’s nurse who came to Haiti for only 5 weeks post-earthquake. But I met this couple who are in the process start a girl’s orphanage, and maybe you could talk to them about Jenny if she does need a home. Their names are Jared and Jalayne. They also have a blog
