Jonas just turned two years old February 9. His birthday present was flying to America with his new dad David Burkett of Carlisle, Ohio. Jonas was an Haitian orphan and experienced the earthquake. He was very sick - dehydrated and malnourished - on his way to the States so David brought him to Dayton Children's as soon as they landed in Cincinnati. They spent their first holiday together on Valentine's Day. Here's a the link to the newspaper article in the Dayton Daily News: http://www.daytondailynews.com/news/dayton-news/haitian-boy-ends-up-at-childrens-medical-center-548489.html
