Homeward bound

This week, two more babies left Dorothy's to return to their homes. Emmanuel went back with his mother to their little house in another part of Port-au-Prince. His older brothers literally ran out of the house and grabbed him when they saw him being carried out of the car. They were ecstatic to have him back. Emily was picked up by Rusty and Cheryl, a couple who run the orphanage in Bercy, Cabaret, an hour outside the city. Emily was brought to them about a year ago but she was so sickly and malnourished that they sent her to Dorothy's with Tasha to get stronger. What a success story!
