Watch this story: Earthquake victims find healing and compassion in Springfield

Thousands of miles from the rubble that now overwhelms the nation of Haiti, six children are laughing, growing, and healing at Shriners Hospital for Children in Springfield. 

They left behind their families, their comfort zones, and their native languages to get care at the specialty hospital. For the past several weeks, they received around-the-clock, one-on-one attention from a dedicated team of doctors, nurses and volunteers.

The care has helped them to heal not just physically, but emotionally as well.  Now, four of the six children are ready to be discharged.  Before they can return to Haiti, they will enter the local medical foster care system and continue treatment at Shriners as outpatients. 

When they leave the hospital they will be missed, but the impression they made on the hospital and its staff will never be forgotten.
