Everyday Heroes: A Home in Haiti

Not the family she lives with in their Southeast Portland two-story, but her other family in Haiti.
Sarah was adopted when she was just 18 months old.
“My parents didn’t have enough money to take care of us, because they have like 10 kids or something,” Sarah said.
Her Portland mom, Kim Callahan, adopted Sarah from Haiti a decade ago.
“Since she was young, my nickname for her is Little Buddha because the wise and beautiful things that’ve come from her are just amazing,” Callahan said.
Even though Sarah, 12, has no memory of her birth parents, she’s been working for years to raise enough money to buy them land down in Haiti and build them a small house.
Sarah sews and sells hats and scarves, does extra work around the house, and puts on garage sales to earn the money.
She’s even started a GoFundMe page to try and crowdsource some funding.
Recently, she sent her birth parents $1,200 for land, and said she only needs $5,000 total to build them a small house.
Sarah hopes to go to Haiti personally next summer to see her parents again, help them build the house and give them a message more than a decade in the making.
“That I love them and thank you for letting me have the best future I could have.”
