They are the children no one wants. They are the blind, the crippled, the mentally or physically handicapped.
And then there’s Little Children of Jesus home where each and every child is treated with loving kindness by Gladys and her staff, who mother them in place of their absent parents. Gladys and her workers believe in the Psalm, “Children too are a gift from the Lord.” (Psalm 127:3)
The home is one of the few in Haiti that specializes in caring for the mentally or physically handicapped.
Some of the children are found abandoned outside of medical facilities. Gladys calls them her “gifts.” The pressure of caring for her helpless charges is enormous. Sometimes she is so overwhelmed she cries. But she keeps going forward because her kids need her.
