News Reports

This morning I ran across several news reports that reference our boys' orphanage:

My heart twisted when I read these quotes. Thank You, Lord, for protecting our children:
"There were babies that were on the second floor rolling all over the place, and glass breaking." - Carol Smith

"I have a hard time remembering because it happened so fast ... There were a lot of babies up there. I literally thought we were all going to die. Not one child had a scratch. It was a miracle." - Lacey Hewitt

Thank you, Jesus.

Hello - we are adopting (still in IBESR) from Maison Des Anges in Tabarre through Building Arizona Families. We have learned the children and staff are ok, but they have sustained damage to the building. I would like to attempt to coordinate an effort among all of us with waiting children to see if we can find a way to alleviate a small part of the overall situation in Haiti by getting our children home and working to speed up the process of adoption for others who decide they would like to adopt. Looking for others who might like to help team up and create a stronger voice. Thanks, Amie Fraley

It was interesting seeing the "before" pictures from Carol Smith after seeing the ones from Lacey on Facebook. Is it true that all of the kids at Ruuska are adopted and just waiting to go home? It would be nice if they would just let all the adoptees go home and have less people they need to tend to!

Hello Amie - I've been praying we could and wanting to do the same thing. Maybe we could bring them home on something like a medical visa for 3, 6, or 9 months to start. Or maybe they have a refugee status. How can we chat?
