I have been pleased to see that progress is being made for the kids in Haiti and their adoptive families in the U.S. and Canada. I still have 1 family that I am working with that needs their teen daughter Daina home....they are so much further in the process than many out there that have been traveling and I think the frustration is getting to them. I can't say that i blame wait and wait and still no word on if YOUR child gets to come home.
I do believe the logic is that the babies and toddlers are more at risk than the teens are...the younger they are, the more at risk for death due to disease, malnutrition and dehydration. Adopting an older teen, this child has shown they can survive Haiti (although scarred) they will not be the first to go in death or to their new life.
I pray for the family, who have tried to remain faithful in their wait, but also respect their frustration growth as nothing is happening for them...PRAYING J & M for you!

The scenes still coming out of Haiti are so mixed for me...Aaron Ivey said it correctly when he wrote his album 'Between the Beauty and Chaos' . I think he hit the nail on the head. Aaron and Jamie also received word that Amos was on a plane and now have him home...WOOT!

I see how media is leaving, Haiti will go back to anonymity for them, but for many of us it will still be real. The Doc's who are helping who take 5 minutes to cry over what they have seen, the Haitian people in the streets who sing Hymnals praising a God that many think have forgotten them, yet they believe. Yesterday, 11 days after the quake, a 23 yo man was found ALIVE and barely scratched from the quake. He was buried in rubble and sipped a soda to keep himself going....a soda and prayer...what an odd combo that maybe only Ange would understand..hehe

I will post items here to the blog to preserve them for my kids and to share the triumphs and memories.

What, in your opinion, can be done to hurry the homeward journey for the kids left there? Is the pace slowing down? Is the State Department messing things up? What do you think is going on?
So frustrated for those parents STILL waiting and so heartbroken...

Thanks for stopping in! said...

The suffering continues even though the world will not see it. The ache we carry in our hearts will continue for the Haitians. Thank you for the updates. The hope found in God knowing and providing small miracles are the bright spots in all of this....Isn't that the norm for HIM! Praise be!
