Meet myLIFEspeaks' Newest Child, Amanda!

Updated: Jan 4

This is Amanda Esmeralda! Amanda means “Loved by All” and Esmeralda means “Precious Stone”. In August 2022, she was found abandoned at Respire, a nearby organization in Gressier, Haiti, that we know well.

Amanda was brought to Respire, where they were told she needed to be seen at their clinic. They never saw the adult who brought her after this point. They found Amanda propped up on a bench, sitting in their clinic. They didn’t know her name or her age and she had nothing but the clothes she was wearing. She was all alone.
