When I first got to Haiti, I planted sunflowers by the front door of the clinic. Once, when I was growing a school, I planted sunflowers as a symbol of hope and potential and beauty and so I had wanted to do that here too. I wanted flowers by the front door. I watched and waited and they did not grow. I thought the rains were too hard but then one day, when I had quite forgotten them, there they were in bloom. We has fun taking this picture and the mothers thought it was very funny too. A sweet, little sunflower baby.
