History:  Cherlande's mother died in the earthquake and her father abandoned her.  Cherlande is a shy little girl, an eager student, happy, and independent.  She had a wonderful time at the beach, sometimes seemed to observe rather than participate.  She was often near me, and delighted me by finally reaching out for me and coming into the water.  Her bright smile is a blessing, I feel there are many more smiles to come and as her pain and sorrow fall away and know she will begin to interact more with the other children and continue to come "out of her shell".  She is a delightful child that you just want to hold, hug and reassure.
