An inspiring story of loss, faith, hope and enduring love.

Britney Gengel was a vibrant, compassionate, 19-year-old Lynn University sophomore when she traveled to Haiti in January 2010 to work for an aide group. Deeply moved by the orphaned children she met, she texted her mother that she dreamed of returning someday to open an orphanage of her own. But hours later, she herself became a victim when an earthquake leveled Port-au-Prince and the Hotel Montana where Britney s group was staying. For 33 days, her family lived a nightmare, with conflicting stories in the post-quake chaos of finding Britney, then losing her. Through sheer determination and a trip to the hell on earth that was the Haitian capital ten days after the quake they learned the truth: their daughter was not coming home alive.

Vowing that her death would not be in vain Len and Cherylann Gengel along with sons Bernie and Richie kept alive their daughter's dream by building a 19,000-square-foot orphanage in Grand Goave, Haiti. This amazing story chronicles their journey: from grieving for their daughter, to building in a third-world country; from receiving the kindness of strangers, to realizing that friendship crosses all cultures. Their experience is proof that you can find meaning and purpose in tragedy, that faith and love are everlasting, and that one person's dream can change the destiny of thousands of others.

Len and Cherylann Gengel have been married for over 24 years and for most of those years worked together to raise their beautiful family, daughter Britney and sons Bernie and Richie. Len, who started C & S Builders when he was in college and then received the state of Massachusetts Homebuilder of the Year Award in 1995, and Cherylann, a stay-at-home mom, had no idea their lives would be forever changed on January 12, 2010, when the Haiti Earthquake decimated and destroyed most of Haiti, burying their daughter Britney in the rubble of the Hotel Montana. Both Len and Cherylann have redirected their lives to making their daughter s last wish of building an orphanage in Haiti a reality, and are currently building an orphanage in Grand Goave, Haiti. The Be Like Brit Orphanage is designed in the shape of the letter B and can be viewed at BeLikeBrit.org. Len, Cherylann and their family are committed to dedicating the rest of their lives to helping the children of Haiti. Len and Cherylann currently reside in Massachusetts and are avid Boston Red Sox fans. They have hosted many events at their restaurant, The Grand Slam Cafe for Red Sox players and one of Len s most cherished memories is watching the Red Sox win their first World Series in 86 years on his birthday in 2004!
