Jessica Williamson works as a nurse in the Emergency Department at St. Francis Medical Center for two weeks every three months. She spends the rest of her time nursing the sick in the mountains of Thomassin, located just above the capital city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. One particular Haitian has inspired Williamson more than any other. Years ago, a widower brought his infant daughter into Williamson’s hospital because he knew he could not take care of her. Williamson volunteered to help take care of her while working in Haiti. Now, four-year-old Phoebe Kate will one day become Williamson’s legal daughter.
