We are heading to Haiti.....

got the dates for the orphanage grand opening....

January 4 -6 and we will be staying two nights at the orphanage...am excited, apprehensive and scared all at the same time, but we are ready to go and see Haiti! Will be visiting the memorial garden at the Hotel Montana site and the school where the kids will be going.

now to figure out all our flights too and from Newark where the group will be meeting up on the 4th and then we will fly all together to Haiti!

please keep us in your prayers!

Now that's an amazing trip Lisa! Is there anything they need that a small group of Girl Scouts could do for a service project?

Lisa, this will truly be a cathartic trip for both of you! How large is the group that is going?

Hugs....

I feel the same way Jennifer....I must be feeling some peace about it, I slept the entire night through from 11 = 545 when my alarm went off, haven't done that in FOREVER!

I love the idea of your girls helping out....it would have to be pretty small though, we can only take carry on luggage through to Haiti...I will give you a call in a couple of days and we can do some thinking.

it will be, also very bittersweet....this journey for us to Haiti began on the day of the earthquake, my husband Jim was at the Hotel Montana and died there....our helping out the orphanage (family lost their daughter there as well) has been a very healing thing for my daughter and I.

Lisa, let me know what group you are going with. I have a fried who does mission work in Haiti and is opening an orphanage there. If he's in Haiti at the same time, I will see if he will be doing anything near Britt's orphanage ( I think that's the right person, right?)

His orphanage is Kay Mari, they are set to open their school soon and next they want to open a medical clinic near by. It's 60 miles from Port-au-Prince.
