We are very excited to announce that our precious little Haylie is featured in a children’s book that is going to be released May 10, 2021.
The book is called Alaina and the Great Play. It’s about a little girl and her first time going to the theatre. Haylie was a great sport in sitting for all the pictures; which, were than illustrated by Collin Bootman. The author is Eloise Greenfield.
Haylie is part of the family we help in St. Maarten – the Pennant family. Haylie was in one of the poorest schools on the island of St. Maarten and we now have her in a private school that she is doing very well in. We are extremely proud of her. She is turning out to be quite the little young lady. Haylie has experienced a lot of firsts with us, her first birthday party with kids, her first Christmas with presents, her first time learning to swim amd her first time trying some Canadian food – LOL – She has been quite the trooper through it all. She is like a little mermaid in the water now and loves to swim. Haylie calls me every morning before she goes to school and we talk and play games together. It brought tears to my eyes this morning when I saw the book cover…as one of Tom and my goals was to help educate a child and we are helping to do that and also build a strong confident child which Haylie is becoming. We have our precious Kaylie, Haylie’s sister, who is severely disabled, that we help, too. I was crying on the phone this morning with Dahalia and Haylie when I saw the book and Haylie was wondering what the heck was the matter with Grandma.
I hope all our loyal customers enjoy this book in reading it with their children as there are many children out there that never get to experience many firsts.
Our adventure in St. Maarten on HGTV’s Carribean Life!
The filming for the show was in August 2018 in St. Maarten with Tom, myself and Michele Warden, our real estate agent. We spent many long hot days filming for a 30 minute episode during our honeymoon no less….we were married not 5 days before. It showcases a lot of things around St. Maarten as well as some crazy adventures Tom and I did. Watch Now!
Hands Across the Water
From Hockley Valley To St. Maarten
Dahalia Pennant is a single mom living in St. Maarten with her two children Kaylie and Haylie, who spent their days at an orphanage while their mother worked.
Four-year old Kaylie is a precious and beautiful child but is severely disabled and is unable to talk or walk. She needs physiotherapy, nutritional supplements and a great deal of medical attention.
Haylie at five years, is a real character but was attending one of the poorest schools on the island and not doing well. We’ve taken her out of that school and enrolled her in a private Canadian school on the island where she will eventually graduate with an Ontario Secondary School Diploma. She is currently looking forward to going to summer camp!
