I would like to have any informations about my origins,if possible.My birth certificate and all my other archives says I was born on May 20 1984 at Port-au-Prince but,it is kind of confusing and suspicious to me because,at the same time some other papers says that I was abandonned by my birth mother at HUEH;which is " Hopital de l'université d'état d'Haiti".I was about 3 months old and I technically became the property of "L'institut du bient-être social(ISBER)which,put me in a orphanage called "crèche" in Haiti;the name of that orphanage is CONSOLMA.I'm not sure that this orphanage still excists.Anyways,I was then adopted by Mme Carmen Innocent(God bless her!!!)and now at 28 years of age,I really feel like it's about time I know something about myself.
Since I was a kid,I've always been told that I totally look chinese,they always called me " gé chiré".And I always laughed because,it is so true.I have light skin,which they call " grimèl"in Haiti,dark brown eyes and long almost straight hair(that brown could really pass for black).
From the time I was living in Haiti til the time I left for USA,everywhere I go people would swear that I'm some type of Afro-Asian mix.
I don't know any Haitian families with that kind of description,I don't know the percentage of asian population in Haiti.I've also been told by people back in Haiti that,I look like I could be from "Jacmel,Fond des Blancs",all those places in Haiti where they have or had a high percentage of light skin people;called "mulatres".
So now!,I'm crying out to anybody who might have any pieces of informations regarding my description,and a haitian family or a person who might look like me;and anyone who might know a story of someone of my description,who lost,abandonned their 3 months old baby girl at"L'hopital général".
I know!,all of this seems to be crazy and impossible but,I really want to give it a try.I'm on facebook and you can see pictures of me there(or under Moise Bourdeau).
Thanks!to all in advance and GOOD LUCK!!!in your search.
P.S:Bourdeau is my husband's last name,I was Rachelle Innocent in Haiti.
