Columbus artist Ric Stewart combines his love of art and motorcycles, most notably through sculpture. We visit his workshop at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center where he demonstrates for us the “lost-wax” method of bronze casting.
Local woman attempts to retrieve adopted daughter from Haitian orphanage
Listen to the Story
Hilliard resident Kathleen Hansley has been waiting for two years to adopt a Haitian child. The process was completely disrupted last week when a major earthquake rocked the Caribbean nation. Now Hansley says the judge in the case is dead and her daughter’s paperwork is buried in the rubble.
Hansley, a child therapist, says once she decided to adopt a child she was utterly charmed by the Haitian toddler she calls Gracie. Hansley talked with WOSU’s Marilyn Smith.
Hansley says she’ll continue to work to get her adopted daughter Gracie out of a Haitian orphanage.
