telling my story....

I wanted to share in words what this trip was like, but I've decided to share it with pictures instead. It was joy to see my son light up when I walked into the room, to have him fall asleep in my arms, or to wake in the night to check on him!
This time, I wasn't as stressed, worried, or nervous about being in Haiti. I took time to take all of it in! The one thing I remember most is every morning when the nannies would sing songs of praise, and then pray out loud. I gained a greater appreciation for these women who take such sweet care of our children. I always appreciated them, but until you truly listen, it's hard to know who deep their love is for the children they care for.
I took finger paint, to make pictures with the children, each child made a picture. I have the majority to send out to parents, so if you have an address I can send it to, please let me know, I really want the parents to have these special pictures!
Most of the children loved this activity!
they were a total joy to work with!
