Full Name Kerlie Jean Jules
Birthday 2/20/2006
Gender Female
Location Jérémie, Haiti

Kerlie lives at the Hopestart Children's Home in Jérémie. 

Kerlie’s mother died in childbirth, and her father died later from cholera.  The people in her community took her to another orphanage in the city where she stayed briefly.  When that orphanage could no longer care for her, they contacted the Hopestart Children's Home, which welcomed her with open arms. 

Kerlie now goes to school regularly and is making good progress with reading, writing, and arithmetic. She is also helpful at the Children's Home where she takes care of the younger ones and particularly likes combing the little girls' hair.
