It was my intention to post a new project this week but due to the recent disaster in Haiti my focus has changed. My Brother, Trevor, and his wife Lindsay, have been in the process of adopting 4 children in Haiti for the last 3 years and started the process with thier 5th one last year. They also work for the Orphanage in which their children reside. Lindsay leads parent trips to Haiti for the new parents who are also in the process of adoption. It has been a long week filled with prayer and a lot of emails, phones calls and news watching. The Orphanage has 3 buildings. 2 of which collapsed. Luckily Trevor and Lindsay's children are alive but the scarce food and water has kept all of us on our knees praying that food and water would reach them soon. As of a couple hours ago we received word that food arrived to one of the locations. We are still awaiting word that the other 2 locations have received the same. In the coming days I will post info on how you can help these children. We may be doing some sort of fundraiser as well. If you would take the time to visit the State dept. website and plead for an expedited adoption process for those families who have been working on bringing their children home it would really be helpful! You can find the address at the bottom of this post.
There is power in numbers. With the thousands of children who are newly orphaned because of the earthquake, the need is even more dire. We need to lessen the burden to care for these children and by bringing the adopted children home we can do this. It will only take 5 minutes of your time but can make a big impact! If you are interested in helping these orphans you can visit the website found at the bottom of the post- (Foyer de Sion)
Thank you and I will post again soon!
