It's hard to imagine that 2 years ago tomorrow, Haiti was devastated by the worst earthquake there ever. Since then I have traveled to Haiti 13 times, a total of 25 times in 12 years, and fallen in love with the kids at the Cabaret Baptist Children's Home. My life will never be the same because of them. Each of us has a passion put in us from God and Haiti is mine. I don't expect everyone to understand or accept that but I ask that you figure out what the passion is in you and do something with it. Don't look to others who are doing things you don't agree with and spend your time arguing or upset with the way they use their time or resources. Focus on your call in life and make a difference! Go!!!

I made my first trip to Haiti in 1998. Fell in love with my first orphan in 2000. Started a non-profit to help Haiti in 2003 and started taking teams down on short-term mission trips soon after. I fell in love with Wanna and Fritzon (and a lot of others in the same orphanage) in March of 2010 and had to wait over 2 years to start the adoption process due to the laws of Haiti and a process that is always changing. Our documents were finally submitted and accepted in the fall of 2012 and are currently moving through the court system. We are quickly (hopefully) approaching the end of our adoption. This is my blog to talk about all things related to our adoption and any thing else I think is relevant to it. Enjoy!
