International Agency's Response to Kiki's Passing

This is the letter that our International Adoption Agency has sent out regarding Kiki's passing away. He truly was an amazing man. Please pray that everything will fall into place quickly for the restructuring process and that the children and staff will be comforted in this time of loss.

Dear Families,

We are very sad to inform you of a great loss for Haitian child advocacy and adoptions.  Jean Kuislen “Kiki” Alexis, who has dedicated his life to the orphan children in Haiti passed away late last week.  It is hard to see how his great shoes will be filled as we look back on and are so grateful for the dedication and support he gave to the children and staff of Maison des Enfants de Dieu

While they are understandably dealing with great grief and sadness over the loss of their friend, support staff, and leader, the staff at Maison and For His Glory are working to pick up where Kiki left off and continue to complete the same important work he has been a part of for many years.  We know the care and dedication to the children will not be compromised and they will continue to work towards their mission of providing support and love to the children in the orphanage as well as assisting in the forming of forever families for as many children as possible.

Many of our CAN families have expressed concern over how this will affect your adoption.  Please be patient and allow the Maison and For His Glory staff to begin the restructuring that must occur due to this unexpected loss.  Adoptions from Maison and Haiti will not be stopped due to Kiki’s passing.  We are certain that the staff will remain dedicated to the important causes that Kiki held so close to his heart. Children of All Nations is awaiting more information on any changes and we will certainly keep families informed as we find out more.

We appreciate every heartfelt and kind word we have received about Kiki and the amazing work being done at the Maison.
