Dying to See The Kids I Love

On Thursday I'll be heading south, on my way back to Haiti. I should arrive at my house in Pignon on Friday afternoon. The last few weeks back in the States have been great. I've had a fabulous holiday, spending time with friends and taking a family vacation to Cabo. The last couple of days I have been busy doing my supply shopping- mostly food, to last me the next several months. My suitcases are bursting at the seams. My estimated guess is that they are pushing their 50 pound max, but we'll see. I had to ship down some boxes of stuff because I just didn't have enough room for everything.

While I've been in the States I've noticed I'm constantly thinking about 'my' kids back in Haiti. I'm so anxious to see them! Here are a few kids that I'm just crazy about...

Job and I at the hospital. He got to take a break from his hospital bed and sit in a chair for a few hours.

Just a few months ago, this baby, Love was malnurished and not thriving at all. She was in the care of her mom, who didn't want/love her. Now, her 15 year old aunt in caring for her and she is making great improvement every week.

Me and Jesula, an orphan. I love this girl!!

Family Time

Last week my uncle had a holiday party at his rockin' new house. I ended up spending the whole night catching up with my Downham cousins instead of socializing. It was a blast. We all agree we have one of the cutest Grandpas out there!

This was Lexi's first Christmas. She got lots of presents from Santa; enough chew toys and bones to last her till next year. She's in heaven.
