You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Jean Ba pics!

This picture brought tears to my eyes-because Jean Ba seemed so sad when I was in Haiti. And here, he just looks SO happy. That smile is priceless-there are no words....

I just love this picture. Thanks, Sandy!

Um, it looks like my youngest may be a bit of a ladies man?!? Should I be worried about this?

I just think this pic is hysterical! Lil Jean Ba is so cute-look at those eyes!

And he's nurturing too!

And stylin'! The hat belongs to Rebecca-and the children like to share. Tina, check out the shirt-aren't you excited?!?


  1. Hey Lena,

    About the photo of your son with the cute girls... we have a similar photo of Annabella(Taina). She is in one of the cribs with 4!!! boys. I too asked if I should be worried. ;)

  2. I see he has good taste hanging out with Anchise & Rebecca! He is soooooooo cute!

  3. It truly is wonderful to see him with that huge smile on his face. It looks like he's riding a bucking bronco! Too cute!

  4. hi lena, my name is angela but the kids at the o know me as you-you. i was the house manager there for nearly two years. i ADORE your boys and have tons of photos (jean baptiste and i were pretty close). so if you would like to give me your email address, i'd be happy to send you some pictures.

  5. Hi Abbie,

    nice to 'meet' you. Annabella is adorable-I got to meet her on my trip in July. I'm excited for you.

    I love that we can all connect in blogland/cyberspace....

  6. Stephanie-I know I love that our kids are friends-so cool! And of course, I've meet Cara B-she was our chaperone on my July trip-and is Rebecca's mom....

    The Three Angel's family rocks.

  7. Cara G-I know! I made this pic of Jean Ba my wallpaper/background because it makes me smile every time I see it.

    I have a little bit of video from my trip, where I got some squeals and giggles from Jean Ba-I need to post it-he was playing w/ blocks with a few other kids in Sandy's apt.

    It's very precious to me-because he was so quiet otherwise.....

    Hugs to you.

  8. Hi Angela aka you-you

    nice to 'meet' you also.

    I would love to get any pics you want to share! I've heard much about you-all of it good.

    you can contact me at


  9. oh my goodness...what a cutie pie :)

    my nic was so serious, then like floodgates he opened up and let his true self flow :)

  10. Missy-your post gives me great hope-I know these little boys have been thru so much-I understand (to a certain degree) the sadness in their eyes. I hope and pray that once they get home, they will blossom as they grieve and grow and that they can get some of the joy and innocence that childhood is supposed to be full of. That is my prayer. Thanks for sharing!


Thanks for interacting with me thru my blog. I love hearing from you.

Thanks again!
