A picture is worth a thousand words but we cannot say enough about the character of the people we have grown to know and love.

Yrlanda's story broke our hearts. This courageous, graceful 12 year old allowed Maurice to interview so we could all hear her story. On January 12, 2010 Yrlanda's grandmother sent her down the mountain to town to buy some rice. As she was walking the earthquake hit, bringing her house down and burying her grandmother in the rubble. As hard as they tried, Yrlanda and her mother couldn't save her. Now, like many Haitians after the quake, Yrlanda's family still lives in a tent.
