Today is Mother’s Day, and while these eight kids don’t necessarily have their own biological mothers to give thanks too, they do have Kristin.
Five years ago Kristin O’Connell felt inspired to travel to Haiti and create Devoted2Children, and that’s exactly what she did. She traveled to Haiti alone, just one woman, and found these kids. The courage and drive to save children led her through the streets of Port-au-Prince, where many of these kids were found. Kristin has put a roof over their heads and has found employees that are now family to them and all of us.
So today I hope they are able to reflect upon what they have, and where they came from. I hope they know they will always have a loving D2C family, and beautiful D2C home, despite what has happened to them in the past. Happy Mother’s Day from Jacmel, Haiti.
