Please pray for the kiddos that have the Chikungunya virus! I talked to a few of the kids yesterday and although Michaelson, my favorite boy named Michaleson, said, "Guess what?! I have chikungunya and, I feel more gorgeous now!" (he must've just learned the word 'gorgeous' and didn't fully know the meaning) at lot more people are getting affected by it. Some of the kids couldn't even get out of bed to talk to me :( thanks so much for the prayers, I know they'll more than appreciate they're getting prayers from the US!

“God may close doors but he always opens a window.” This is the quote I kept repeating to myself during the last week. I was supposed to go to Haiti, but unfortunately, there is a debilitating virus (called Chikingunya) spreading very quickly down there. My doctors didn’t think it was safe for me to go.

I was more than upset, as I feel those kids are like my own children/siblings. I missed out seeing them in over a year. After writing back and forth all year long, this trip was our count down to seeing each other again. I even debated with my mom to let me go for just a few hours; to say hi and explain to them why I couldn’t stay. A letter just didn’t seem to suffice!

Sadly, I had to make due listening to French songs about the beach pretending I was there, reading old letters about these summer trips, or listening to the beautiful sounds of some of the girls singing on a CD they created called Son De Soleil (sounds of the sun.)

Although these things do not even come close to this trip I missed, I know I’ll be back soon. Timoun m’ap retounen byento.

When I was just starting my senior year of high school, I was diagnosed with a large brain tumor in my cerebellum. I had emergency surgery and spent almost four months in the hospital and inpatient rehab institute.

At first I was unable to even swallow or turn my head while lying in bed. I was not able to speak for over six weeks. Slowly over time I learned how to sit up in bed and eventually make my way to using a wheel chair. From there I learned how to stand, and afterwards I relearned walking. My speech came back very slowly and I had to practice using my mouth and tongue to form words. After a few months I was able to walk with a walker and talk in short sentences. But, I was still unable to feed myself, or take a shower without help.

Over the next 20 months, I worked extremely diligently on relearning everything I needed to. I have made great strides in all areas of my rehabilitation. I know I must continue working very hard to get back to where I was before the tumor was diagnosed.

To prepare to serve as President of Key Club my senior year of high school, I spent the summer beforehand outlining a year filled with raising money for many different causes. I had a heart for volunteering and doing community service, even to the point of talking to my parents (before my diagnosis) about waiting to start college so I could do mission work somewhere. I have always been a very compassionate person and love to work with children. I had been volunteering at Holy Family Institute where twelve Haitian orphans were living - and fell in love with them. I told my parents I wanted to do something to help other kids like them.

My mission to fulfill this goal is:
Establish a loving orphanage where children are able to grow up envisioning and fulfilling their dreams and goals.


Thank you for your support! I am truly appreciative.
Christina

Christina, Don't know if you remember me from SB2W- but I certainly remember you! I was sitting next to Sally the other day in school when I saw your website. I was so excited to see how well you are doing, and how you've become a truly exceptional individual. Your mission is admirable, and wonderful. You can ask Sally for any of my contact information if you need anything at any time! Much love --Juliet Boucher
