Cher-Enfant most often goes by his nickname.  The children at the HOLD Home affectionately call him “Nesley”.  He is one of the younger kids in the home and is often very quiet.  He likes to sit back and watch everything that is going on.  He will participate in games or other events when lead by someone else who wants him to be involved, but he rarely jumps at the opportunity to do something new on his own.  He is a little shy with new folks, but amongst his friends he can be heard chattering away.  Nesley is about the age that many children in Haiti are when they would get sold to a wealt
