  • Adoption News

    I have never been gone from Haiti for more than 7 weeks until this year!  I went out to the States to do fundraising on April 10th and did not return until the last of July.  That is a long time for me, but I spent 2 months fundraising with John by my side and then a month taking care of family matters.  Here in Haiti lot of things took place while I was gone. Several children went home with their adoptive parents while I was not here.  Made me sad to not be here when they le...

    This has been a busy week for me being my first week back in Haiti.  I also have been really tired trying to get used to the humidity and heat again!  It always take me a little while when coming back from Colorado which is about 20% humidity and coming to Haiti which is probably close to 100% humidity at times!  The difference  makes me tired for a few days. My trip down to IBESR went well.  Several people were out sick due what they are saying is the Chikungunya fever....

  • IBESR News from Monday 21 April

    As I'm getting ready to leave for two weeks in Colorado visiting our office and working out there most of the time we are there.  I am also going to Boulder to bring my son, Mark, home for the summer!  Gosh, I have really missed him a lot!  Not being there for any of the holidays where he could come home if we had been there was hard. So I'm trying to do a million things before I leave and one of them was that I needed Miss Magaly to go to IBESR today to check on dossiers.  S...
