Portia just sent me this picture. This is little Davidson. He is about three years old. He lives in the orphanage on Ille a Vache. Sister Flora picked him up at a hospital in Port au Prince when she took another sick child there. Davidson was abandon at the hospital by his mother. Sister Flora couldn't leave without him. As she says, "I came with one, and left with two."

Now, he is the star of the orphanage. He and I became instant buddies. He was hanging on me the entire time, and wanted me to hold him, even though it was a million degrees out. In this picture he is laughing like crazy because he thought it was so funny that I kept telling him I was going to eat the tree. I wanted to put him in my backpack and take him with me, but Sister Flora wouldn't let me.


  1. I laughed when I interpreted 'Cow Island'! Davidson sure looks like a real cutie pie and loving every moment in your arms, Paige!

  2. He is a cutie pie- I wish I could see him everyday!

    I like this picture too. That was a fun day.

  3. i am such a good photographer...

  4. i remember him. he was cute. i'm glad you got to play with the kids this time instead of just taking notes
