Providing Exceptional Neonatal Care & a Safe Haven to The Smallest, Sickest and Most Vulnerable Children of Haiti.

Our History

God’s Littlest Angels (GLA) has ministered to the children of Haiti since 1994 through medical care, sponsorship programs, and has been involved in international adoptions since 1997. Our focus will always be to give the Christ-centered love, care, and nurturing that every child deserves.

How We Help

We are a Haitian care center and orphanage located in the mountains above Petion-Ville, close to the village of Fermathe. God’s Littlest Angels focuses on three primary areas of ministry to the people of Haiti: Child & Family Assistance / Adoption, Neonatal Intensive Care, and Community Outreach.

The Story of God's Littlest Angels

God’s Littlest Angels was founded by John and Dixie Bickel on Christmas Day, 1994, when a 1 pound 15 ounce baby was born at the local mission hospital in Fermathe. Because of her size, she was not given much of a chance for survival.


With the parents’ permission, Dixie took the baby home.  John put his skills to work making an incubator out of a cardboard box and a heating pad.  At the time, Dixie didn’t have access to IV supplies, so she kept the baby alive by feeding her with an eye dropper every two hours.  Within four days, she was drinking from a doll bottle. After four months, Angel Noël  went home to her parents.  We kept in contact with Angel Noël for many years.  We have not heard from her family since the earthquake of 2010 displaced so many people in Port-au-Prince, but we continue to pray that her family is still safe and well.
