    Newton woman brings hope to orphans in Haiti

    Filis Casey had never seen need like she found in the country

    The devastating Haiti earthquake two years ago left a group of 60 orphans living in primitive conditions in Port-au-Prince until a Newton woman stepped in to help. Filis Casey, founder of Alliance for Children Inc., International Adoption Agency, and the Alliance for Children Foundation, reached out to the families of adoptive children she has placed, and within months raised enough money to build the displaced children an orphanage. Here is the temporary shelter the children will soon leave behind.
