In the Summer of 2010 I was one of many lucky people who had the opportunity to take a short trip to Haiti. I fell almost instantly in love and just can't keep myself away. I've spent about 11 months in Haiti since the first time I went two and a half years ago and my time there isn't over. I'm exploring my options on where to take my life from here but it WILL include Haiti in one form or another. This is where I record stories and thoughts about my experiences.

I can't believe I only have two more days left. For a while, I would tear up every time I thought about it. And I thought about it A LOT. Now, I'm just feeling raw and tired of thinking. I hope that I can have the strength to leave without shutting down. I am not good with change (obviously) and this is a big one. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right?

I will be visiting La Gonave as well as Leogane for a few weeks before I go back to the Sates. It will be really nice to get to see the girls for an extended period of time. I hope that it will help me transition from being away from all the kids at Sue's because I really love and miss the girls and I will be happy to go see them.

I have really been enjoying Mallorie. She's jumped right into the swing of things and seems to be enjoying herself. The kids really like her! She does so good with the boys too and that makes me feel safe about leaving them with her for the summer. She's a really awesome girl and I wish I could have spent more time with her!
