Guess Who Is Going to Haiti?!

Yes, it's me! Flying from Iquique to Santiago on Monday night, April 6 to board my Copa flight in the wee hours of the morning on Tuesday, April 7 and arriving in Haiti that afternoon. Spending one whole week with my amazing little boys and returning from Haiti on Tuesday, April 14 (arriving home Wednesday, April 15.)

I am going alone for reasons of finances and family - no $$ for both of us to travel, and too soon after the transition to a new city/home/school for both Pedro and I to leave the kids. Also for the sake of finances, I will be staying where the boys live and not at a hotel like we did last time. Which means no air conditioning and no showers, and those who know me will understand what a stretch that is for me! So I will admit that while I'm very excited I am also nervous, especially about going alone. But most of all I just cannot wait to have my babies in my arms once again. Although from the sounds of it, Ian is pretty mobile these days! And his favorite word is NO ... so this visit should be really fun. :) Thanks for continuing to pray!
