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

quick update

I am home.

I have much to share, but not the energy to do it.....I am getting sick. Sore throat. I managed to survive the week without it-but now that I am home, it is hitting me. Hard.

The kids are great, Jack & Marcia are awesome.

I have lots of photos too. Watch for them.

If you gave me gifts for your kids or sponsored students, they were delivered. More details later.

If you don't know what I am talking about click on the words "sponsored student" and learn how you can help. A Haitian man and I had a conversation-and to quote him "education is life." You can help, for less than a dollar a day. Seriously people, get over your fear and greed and excuses and do SOMETHING to help. (yes, I am on a rant.)

I'm feeling exhausted and sad.

I'm amazed by God. I can't even begin to tell you the miracles I saw (many of them small, but miracles nonetheless). I will try, later.

I am content and at peace, even amidst the sadness and missing the boys.

I am super duper thrilled that a large number of children at the O are getting close to going home-I think maybe 8? In the next few weeks/months? They are at the end of the process or close. It's a miracle any Haitian child ever gets adopted and goes home. A MIRACLE, I say. It gives me much hope.

Going to do some laundry and take a nap. I need a nap. Sorry.

Hugs to all.


PS bidding is coming to an end for some items on our online auction/fundraising blog, fyi.
