Daphene Aristène, 6 months, was born in Santo on the outskirts of Port-Au-Prince during the earthquake on January 12th.
Her mother, Gracieuse Jean, went into labor at 4 PM on the 12th. She ran outside when her house started shaking and while her house collapsed completely, she gave birth to Aristène at 6 PM in the street. Gracieuse also has two boys, aged 4 and 5. Her husband has been out of work since the earthquake and the whole family has been staying in a shelter made from tarps. Daphene Aristène's nickname is "Goudou Goudou" which is a Haitian Creole slang term for earthquake.
