What's Left of the Haitian Presidential Palace...


This was on Twitter. I keep thinking... if the PALACE looks like that, what does our little orphanage look like?

I wish you could imagine the shanty towns in Haiti. ... the building just piled on top of each other

I can only imagine what these look like now.

There have been so many aftershocks today. So much chaos. I want to be there, holding my babies and making sure they have food and clean water and comfort and safety.

I can only imagine how very dark tonight is. Something like this must have knocked so much off line. Our contacts still can't get through to Haiti to find out if our orphanage was damaged or if the children are all OK.

As my friend T said, We're praying for angels to watch over them this dark night.

Please... let there be a miracle. Let there be someway to get these children out despite the destruction of so many of the government buildings. Let there be a way out of this chaos.

Sweetheart, I wish I could sleep with you and Miss Jess, I wish you were in the other bed with "Papa mwen". We wish were there tonight to comfort you - which would comfort us as well.

Please, Heavenly Father... let there be some process that will rise from this dust to allow us to get our babies home.

You've been in my thoughts since I found out about what happened. Praying that your babies are alright and that they'll be coming home soon.

I have followed your blog for quite a while now, learned about you two through my daughter Colleen, and I work with Lori's sister Lindsay. Please know that my prayers include you and your family daily. Please let the babies be okay and come home soon.

When I first heard about the earthquake in Haiti, my thoughts immediately went to the orphanage. I pray they are all safe. It's like reliving the tsunami in Samoa, not knowing what to do from afar, just the not knowing about anything, and not being able to be there to help and comfort. My thought and prayers are with you and your kids. -Luana
