The Journey Was Just Beginning . . . .

by Sandi on April 16, 2011

As many of you know Tim recently got back from a trip with a great group of people to do dental work at an orphanage in Fedja & a more remote rural area in Thomassique.  So many of our patients gave towards our efforts to take basketballs and flip flops to the kids at the orphanage and we are so thankful for all that you did to help.  Some pictures are posted on our Facebook page if you want to see them here:http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/LittletonDentistry/304973457933

We thought that it would be a one week adventure but in this case, the journey is just beginning.  While in Haiti, Tim had the pleasure to get to know a special couple who was also along on the trip.  Matthew is a teacher at Cherry Hills school and is married to a special lady named Julia.  They were considering adopting a child at some point but while in Haiti they were literally handed a child whose family was unable to care for her any longer.  Matthew & Julia named her Adele and she was able to spend a few days with them before they had to leave her at the orphanage with plans for adoption already in the works.  Mary Jo, another gal on the trip blogged about what happened so if you are interested in the details, visit her writings here:  http://maryjoaguilera.blogspot.com/2011/04/baby-adele-mercy.html?spref=fb

We wanted to share this with you because in addition to the basketballs, flip flops and dentistry that you all supported so generously, you also helped get this group of people somewhere where a little girl’s life will be changed forever.  Here’s a picture of baby Adele and we’ll keep you posted on her journey:
