Wilder Saint-Velus & Ralph Williams

Mableton resident Wilder Saint-Velus had what you might call an unusual childhood. He grew up in Haiti until age 13, and then came to the United States on a dangerous journey, unchaperoned. Wilder hasn’t seen his parents or siblings since he left Haiti in 1992, but hopes someday to be reunited with them.  At StoryCorps, Wilder’s father-in-law Ralph Williams asked to hear the story of his journey.
