I wanted to share some good news with you today, I believe we need it right now to boost
Our spirits. First let me say that things are going well with negotiations with US and Haitian
Governments to bring your children home. Everyone involved wants the outcome to be good
And is looking out for the best interest of the children. It is imperative that you register your
Adoption with Joint council, once you have done this you should receive a confirmation email,
If you did not get a confirmation email, go back and do it again.
As you know we have confirmation that Harry is in an LDS church in PetionVille, all the children
Living in the orphanage with him were evacuated safely. The mounting concerns now are that
PetionVille is in the mountains and it has been difficult to get aid to them. Harry said that there
Is food to purchase and even gas for his truck, but he has no money. And because PetionVille is
In the mountains it has been difficult for rescue teams to get to them. Harry says that if he
Could get some gas in his car he could try to find Nadia and the foster kids. He would also
Be able to buy food and supplies, there is some available to purchase (although the prices are
Astronomical) but the banks are shut down and there is no way to get money.
I am happy to tell you that we have found a way to get money to Harry! We have a friend (via
Shannon Cox, haitianroots.com) who will be traveling to Haiti tomorrow with a special medical
Team put together by the LDS church. Dr. Jeremy Booth has agreed to take the money to
Harry. He is an ER doctor, speaks fluent Creole and loves the Haitian people. They have been
Trying to fly out for several days but because of flight restrictions but hope to fly out tomorrow.
The hope for the little angels team is out getting a substantial amount of cash right now to
Send with Dr. Booth. I know this money will be critical in helping to find and feed our children.
I want to tell each of you thank you, it is because of so many of you and your contributions
That the hope organization has funds to send down.
I will keep you posted, please pray that Dr. Booth is able to reach Harry with the funds!!
Please keep Haiti in your prayers and Me and Dave keep thinking how Busy Fabrice Must be trying to help all the kids. He was all ways looking out for them when we where at the Hotel.
Hopefully this next week we will hear lot's of good news,And have a little bit of peace until we get everyone Home,and know that our friends in Haiti are being taken care of.
