Guess who came to visit today? This is Nadine- Darlens' sister. She is adorable and I was so happy I got to meet her... especially since I'm leaving tomorrow for a week. I'll be in Sacramento to see my sister in her high school musical and I'm SO excited... maybe I'll get some posts in with all the free time :)

I had the privilege of being this little stud's volunteer at GLA. And then I had the privilege of getting to know his whole family in Indiana when they flew me out there. The friendships I have made since I came to Haiti are some of my most cherished ones and I feel blessed to be a part of some truly amazing people's lives. Rebekah, Jonas' adoptive mom, is mother of 5, one still in China waiting to come home. Check out her fantastic blog for more pics of Jonas in his new converse :) (this post made my day). Thanks & love you Rebekah!!!!

Hi. My name is Kervenson. I came to clinic today and was immediately spotted by the white people there because of my extreme malnutrition due to a lack of protein... a lot of the visiting doctors today had never heard of kwash and they were all looking at me. My Aunt brought me and I am very sick. My body is rotting and the fluid collecting in my body is causing my skin to break down. My limbs and face are swollen and my flesh is raw. It hurts, and when I am not crying I am sleeping. I ate some Medika Mamba today and drank some juice. My stomach couldn't handle it and I threw up. When people touch me it hurts so much, but I love being held. My eyes are almost swollen shut and crying makes them swell up even more.
