The Twin's Birthdad

A couple months ago I sent money and pictures for the twins' birth dad. The child finder went to see if she could locate him and found out he was living in the mountains. She hoped he would hear she was looking for him and come to the orphanage. He showed up last week but I don't know if it's because he got the message or because it was the holidays or if he just needed help. I'd ask the O people to take him to the store so he could get things he really needed, but he just wanted to take the money instead. I really hope it goes toward things that will really help him. Last I heard he had no home and no job. This should get him by for a while.

I don't know really anything about the birth dad other than he had a shelter made of banana leaves, and when it rained he'd have to stand and hold the twins. The shelter blew down in a storm. He wanted more for the twins, so he brought them to the orphanage. I hope that he's had the chance to hear the gospel during visits to the orphanage. I hope he knows he think about him and pray for him. I hope he realizes the twins are being cared for, and that I won't let them forget they have a dad in Haiti who loved them enough to want them to have a life he couldn't get them.

I feel bad that I get to raise his twins because I live in a country where most of us have more than we need, and he lives in poverty. Sometimes life doesn't seem all that fair. We can't change it all, but I hope I'm changing at least my little corner of the world for the better.

Was the person who found him through the o. Or is it an independent person? I would love to have pictures of our son's family.
