Last week was an incredible one in the prosthetics lab.  4 more haitians went from one leg and crutches to two legs.  :)
We had two little boys, one 4, Junior, and one 7, Kervins.  I am in love with both of them!!!  
We also had Desire, who's been waiting to marry his fiance until he found someone to make him a leg... this puts tears in my eyes as I write!  These two were truly in love, and soooo happy and grateful that Desire finally got a leg!  He was a pre-earthquake amputee, and his leg got taken as he was walking down the road and a car hit him.  Lastly, we had a sweet old man named Jean Pierre, (sorry, no photos), but I truly loved him too!  He was told after his surgery that he'd never walk again, as there were complications with the amputation.  BUT, he was a miracle case who got up the first time after putting his leg on, and walked all around the lab with no crutches or parallel bars, and NO PAIN!!!  Miracle. :)  


Hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do.  :)
