Via the Peoria Journal Star, Dr. John Carroll has an encouraging story: Haitian Child-Slave Becomes Miracle. The introduction (click through to read the whole story):
During the last two decades I have had the opportunity to meet hundreds of people who have cared for Haitian Hearts children in their homes before and after the children have had heart surgery. These host families from all over the United States have been wonderful.
In 2003 Haitian Hearts brought six Haitian children on the same flight from Port-au-Prince to the Tampa International Airport. All were sick and needed heart surgery soon. Three of the children would be operated at All Children’s in Saint Petersburg and the other three at St Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Tampa.
In the large crowd of people at the airport who greeted us as we got off the plane were Yves and Micki Morency. The Morencys were to be one of the children’s host parents in Saint Petersburg.
Micki’s incredible story of Louise (not her real name) is posted below. As Micki beautifully describes, Louise’s heart surgery is only one of the miracles experienced by her and witnessed by everyone involved in her care.
Micki has kindly allowed me to post her article on Dispatches from Haiti in the Peoria Journal Star. Thank you, Yves and Micki, for all you have done. Deye mon gen mon (Behind mountains there are mountains).
And thank you, Dr. Carroll, for all you've done.
