Ten-year-old Rodna is a good girl! She just came home from school and has clothes to hang on the line. A true Haitian, she carries everything on her head! This metal pan was full of wet clothes a few minutes ago, but Rodna does everything with a smile!
Her parents were very, very poor. When her mother died, her father had to borrow money for the funeral. But the men he borrowed money from were angry when he couldn’t pay it back. They kidnapped all her siblings until the money was paid. That’s when we realized there was a baby involved! Her father brought her to our orphanage. She was suffering from malnutrition.
Rodna loves singing in the “children’s service” each night. She wants to be a nurse! She always has a smile “a yard long!” We love this sweetie!
