Adrienne & Neissa 16 Mar 09 Adrienne, one of our three faithful and mighty cooks at the Toddler House,  called me last night to let me know she had a doctor’s appointment this morning and would be arriving just a bit late to work.  When she did arrive, she had an unusual look on her face.   nShe was perspiring from walking up the hill to the house from the main road where she had gotten off of public transportation.  Her 6-months-along baby belly protruded awkwardly in front of her.  I was in the house at that moment and she urgently called for me to come out and talk to her.  As I walked towards her I could see Kettelie and Fanita with Adrienne 19 Jan 10 (3) a look of perplexity and anxiety on her face. I was slightly alarmed but  then I realized that she also had a twinkle in her eye and a smile played at the corner of her mouth as she  caught her breath.  “Molly,”  she could hardly wait. “I saw the doctor. There ARE TWO BABIES,”  she declared in one breath.  “Oh Adrienne, that is wonderful!  TWINS!!  You are Erlande with her nanny Adrienne 1 June 09 (10)going to have twins!  I am so happy for you.”  Twins are special in every  culture, but in Haiti they are simply adored.  Adrienne has high blood pressure, and has been suffering from a decaying tooth.  She is a new wife, and will be a first time mother.  She will be a wonderful mother.  She has been an  amazing mother to countless numbers of our toddlers as they have come through GLA and gone on to their forever families.  This pregnancy has not been easy on her though.  Please pray for her and her babies’ health as they enter their third trimester.  Adrienne and her husband live in tent community off of Rue Frere in Port Au Prince.
