Manman just one thing

Yesterday I talked with the girls. Rosika the oldest ask me if I could bring her just one thing I ask her what that was she said a tent. I told her I could not bring just a tent for her. That would not be fair for all the other kids. She said no no manman one for all of us. I told her I could not carry one that sleeps 100 kids. But we were trying to do something. Life is so hard for these kids. It breaks my heart.

When it was time to say goodbye I told them I had to go that I loved them and bye, the little one says no bye manman no goodbye. I said I love you and will see you on Monday Rosika says NO Goodbye. How will I ever get on that plane when it is time to come back home. God please give me strength. I know all things in you time.

Sometimes God gives us blessings when we are not expecting them.

I was on my was to Bowling Green with my friend Nancy. At 9:34am I got a call from Diana with ABI she ask me if I was sitting down and said I would want to. I said OK. She said you are not going to believe this, I find it had to believe but you are out of Parquet Court. That this usually takes around 4 months and we had done it in about 2 weeks. Parquet Court is a very complex series of steps and processes involving multiple offices and repeated trips between them. All I could do was cry. I think for a few minutes Nancy wondered what was going on with my crying. But they where happy tears. I told Diana I was speechless and did not know what to say. She said I can tell you what to say thank you God. Which I did. She said that she had not heard of a family being done with parquet court this fast. She said it is a miracle. She said we might want to look into fall enrollment for school.

To God be all the glory. Sometimes he gives us blessings when we are not expecting them. All day I have felt like I am in a dream. In just a few months our girls will be on a plane with us. I have so much to do.

Thank you all so much for your support, love, and most of all your prayers. A special thanks to everyone at All Blessings International, Diana Boni, Margarette Saint Fleur, Carlyne Saint-Cyr and the wonderful team in Haiti , Lesly Tilus and Anna for caring for my girls.

Who can have fun

They told us to have fun this summer, because it would be our last one without kids. Who can have fun not knowing if yours ate today, got hurt. My gilrs have to sleep in tents that might get flooded with water. This is how they live. Who can have fun knowing this.

Looking back

It is hard to think that a year ago we were having our homestudy and doing all kinds of paper work. Looking back the time has gone by so fast and yet so slow. We have meet so many nice and kind hearted people. When I went to Haiti the first time I had no idea what God had in store for us. I knew there was something special about the place as or plane was landing. How much our lives have changed and will be changing. I welcome the change. I Left my heart in Haiti on that first trip. Thank you God for your wonderful gift of two beautiful Haitian daughters.
