2 Kids Who Beat the Odds in Haiti

One of the most miraculous stories to arise out of the Haiti earthquake catastrophe of 2010 was the four-month-old who was found alive in the rubble four days after the quake.

Can you believe it’s been five years since the earthquake? When I was doing research for False Truth Books 4-6, much of which takes place in Haiti, I remembered this story and checked in on what ever happened to that little girl.

Here she is, now five years old!

She’s a cutie, isn’t she? Her name is Jenny. She lives in Miami now with her parents, who were separated from her during the earthquake, but survived and were reunited with her.

Jenny’s story reminds me of the fictional story of Estelle Marcon and her daughter Dominique Wren, featured in False Truth. At age nine, Dominique survived a dangerous attack on her world as deadly as the earthquake’s attack on Jenny’s world. But Dominique escaped to Florida, where she, like Jenny, fled personal disaster. As a child, Dominique loved to play princess. Reports say Jenny enjoys the same.

You know I am always rooting for the underdog. If Jenny’s story isn’t an example of thriving against the odds, I don’t know what is!
