Creole phrases for friends and family

I thought while we wait for our children to come home it would be nice to share some Creole phrases with you- our friends and family. I'll sprinkle in a little here and there.

Good morning:
Sounds like- Bohn-zhoo

Good Afternoon:
Sounds like- Bohn-swah


We are so happy you are part of our family:
Nou byen kontan ou fe pati fanmi nou!
Sounds like- Noo bee-ihn kohn-tahn oo feh pah-tee fahn-mee noo!

We love you so much:
Nou renmen ou anpil!
Sounds like- Noo raynmayn oo ahn-peel.

You are so beautiful/handsome:
Ou bel anpil!
Oo behl ahn-peel!

If you would like to learn a little more Creole or practise writing/speaking it... there is a chat group for adoptive families and their family and friends that you can join at:
