Jamesly showed up at our gate last evening. He's 12 and was living with his handicapped grandmother who cannot help him. He desperately wants to go to school so he decided to leave St Jean and seek a family that needs a restavek. His hope was that this family would send him to school. Upon arrival in Cayes, he asked around for a family that could use him and was directed to us. Jamesly is articulate and knows what he wants. We'll process him today, verify the situation, visit his grandmother and most likely take him in. Wouldn't you?
