Update from Nathan's Grandma O

Nathan is with Lori and Brent!
I want to say that all of the children are with their parents, but I don't know that for sure, so I won't post that...

This is a link to the front page article in this morning's Deseret News:

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700005975/You-did-it-You-did-it-Haitian-orphans-heading-to-Utah-soon.html

Be sure to look at the photo gallery! And have a box of tissues close...sweet photos of the families.

We don't know yet when they will be home...Chareyl is trying to arrange a less expensive way home with the airlines. She must be totally exhausted, but she is still constantly working for these children and their families. Be sure she is included on your 'Heroes' list!

I think that after everyone has had some time to cuddle children, catch up on sleep, and mentally review the happenings of the last 19 days, we will begin to hear amazing stories. There has been interventions, both govermental and divine, that those of us watching have not seen, because there simply wasn't time to stop and tell the story. There have been tears because of frustrations and roadblocks, amazement as ways around those roadblocks have appeared, lots of people holding their breath until needed things fell into place, and angels assisting all along the way. Those angels have come in the persona of company executives, organizations of every kind, government officials, caring individuals, airport officials, military personnel, and probably hundreds more that I don't know about yet.

And it all started with an earthquake.

if you have a chance to talk to Lori and Brent, let them know they both deserve to be on that "heroes" list.

I read the article and so loved looking at the pictures of the families.....yes, families...being reunited. My eyes are still welled with emotion, but at least this time it is for the greatness of the story instead of the heartbreak. God is good!

Those pictures were so wonderful to see. I have goosebumps on my arms and tears in my eyes. I am so happy for them. SO happy.

I'm so incredibly happy for y'all. Little Nathan is finally where he should be...with his Mom and Dad!

The pictures of Lori being reunited with Nathan and Brent are glorious! I am so grateful that the Rosenlof's have shared their story with us...it reminds me of the good in the world and that our Heavenly Father is mindful of us all. Congratulations on becoming a mommy and daddy today.

Still praying for those left in Haiti!

I've shed many tears while reading Lori's blog, our thoughts are with them and the kids.
Lori and Brent are gold!

Hello,

I found your site through a friend. We have a group and want to do a service project. Is there anything that we can collect for the Haiti orphanages, medical supplies, food bars, etc?

Thanks,

My school is collecting money for the red cross to take to Haiti. The kids are excited to help. We are excited to see our new nephew.

I agree with Sandra, Lori and Brent and ALL the "new" parents are my heroes!!
Congratulations Lori & Brent. Can't wait to see more pictures! And hear about your new life together. Hopefully Jessica will be here soon!
