Three Little Biographies

I was looking through my pics, and came across this one. This picture was taken by Portia on the day we bribed children with candy to make sad faces. Even though we bribed them with candy, after reading their biographies, I am sure you will agree that they have reason to have sad eyes.

Fabian is the youngest after 3 sisters and 2 brothers. His parents moved to Port-au-Prince to find a better life and left him behind in Cayes. He came to Espwa to live and go to school. He is between 10 and 12 years old.

Ti Toma is 5 years old. He is from Jeremie. He has one 8-year-old older brother who lives at Espwa and one sister who still lives in Jeremie with his parents who are too poor to take care of all the children.

Eddie is from Les Cayes. His parents are dead. He has one older brother who lives in Cayes. He is 10 years old. He has been with the project for just over a year.


  1. I am curious as to the kind of candy the children like to be treated to.....any chance I can send some along to them??

    P.S. OOps.... Your mother's automatic spell-check went on again! I just can't help myself when I feel the need to comment. Sorry, Paigey! Love you!!

  2. Paige...
    I read your blog almost daily. I really enjoy all the pictures and stories. Keep up the great work!

  3. what do you mean mom? what did i spell wrong this time? if it is super sweet, they like it.

    glad you are enjoying the blog, cynthia. some days its hard to put in the effort, but when i get comments like yours, it keeps me going!

  4. Very hard to read these three biographies. Especially when you know each and every child has their own reason to have sad eyes. It's just so hard living here in the states, to put into perspective what families face in Haiti. Keep up the great work. Our thoughts are with you. Love, J
