Claire on the phone
PAGE 4
Each week, the family calls Claire's former orphanage to keep her connected to the only life she's ever known. Claire is able to speak to the woman who ran the orphanage, as well as her best friend.

Still, the calls can be difficult. "The first week, I remember praying with her at night and she just started breaking down and crying, as she was praying for all the kids over there," Scott says. "I think she misses them."

At first, Debbie says Claire was afraid she might have to go back to Haiti. "My daughter Ashley, who is in Haiti right now, told Claire that she was leaving," Debbie says. "She asked Claire if she wanted to go with her and she said, 'Oh, no, no. Claire no Haiti.'"
