Synopsis: The shaking was only the beginning. When a massive earthquake devastated Haiti’s capital city of Port-au-Prince, the staff at God’s Littlest Angels orphanage knew their biggest challenges were still ahead. Their buildings had stood and the 152 children in their care were alive, but the future was uncertain and survival was by no means guaranteed.
In this honest and heart-wrenching account of living through the struggles of the earthquake’s aftermath, Melanie Wright Zeeb shares her own experiences as well as those of other staff members and adoptive families around the world. In Haiti, the staff faced shortages of food, water, medicine, and other supplies, and the fear of not being able to acquire more. The nerve-rattling aftershocks continued, adding to the stress of survival and the emotional and psychological trauma of living through a horrific natural disaster.
Around the world, adoptive families waited anxiously and helplessly from afar, knowing that their children were in the middle of a disaster zone. For most of those families, their heartache transformed into unbelievable joy when their children were evacuated out of Haiti and into their arms.
Beauty from Ashes is a story of suffering, pain, and loss, but also of hope, survival, and healing. BUY NOW!
