We witness a miracle each time a child enters a life. But those who must make their journey home across time and miles, growing in the hearts of those waiting to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny. And placed among us by God's own hands.

Article: Haiti Still Waiting....

The link to this article:


was posted by the wonderful women who coordinates missionary teams at the orphanage that we worked at, on her blog. It highlights everything I saw and heard while in Haiti. When I tell people what I saw they are often in disbelief because there has been so much media attention around all the money that has been donated to the Haiti relief effort. I am not going to hypothesize where that money is right now. The important thing is that the world understands that Haiti is in desperate need of recovery. Seriously, the children cannot wait. Living in a overcrowded tent camp during the rainy season, when Malaria is rampant, is no place for a child. Then add to the likely quick spread of disease give the living conditions and I fear for the youngest and most vulnerable. Haiti already has a very high infant death rate and the numbers could get very grim in the current situation.

+ The pictures posted here, I took of the tent camps by our hotel and around the city of Port au Prince.
