Dear parents of La Grande Famille,
As many of you may know, the recent tragedy in Haiti has hit us directly. We have very close family members in Haiti (Coffy’s parents, brothers, and extended family) that we have not been able to locate. This is a very difficult time for us and our children.
However, we still intend to give the best care we can to the children of La Grande Famille. We know that as parents, the care of your child is very important to you. We wanted to share this with you because you are an extension of our family. We pray that we hear something positive and as circumstances change, we will be sure to keep you up-to-date.
Our daughter Ade has such fond memories of her childhood in Haiti in which we lived for six years. She has asked us to help her create an organization called Help Haiti Help Itself. For those of you who would love to help us in any way, you will be able to donate to our organization as soon as everything is set in place. Thank you in advance.
Thank you sincerely for your concern and sensitivity toward this matter,
Yakini and Jean Paul Coffy
