Update Photo

Not so great news...

We found out today that there is flooding in Lamardelle - the village where our creche is. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves:

This is the road by the creche -
and the ditch where, in June, people would bathe and wash clothes.
This is the gate into the creche - as you can see the water
is right up to the gate - we are told that there is
no water inside the compound, yet.

Another photo of the road to the creche -
it is completely washed out.

Here is the information we received from Gina Duncan in Haiti:

“The white river since Tuesday night has flood the village. Access is impossible via vehicle only can get through with donkey. Lucien has been able to get some food and supplies to the crèche via donkey. The children are safe but stuck inside the compound. The village people are without food and drinking water.”

From Vivian with Chances for Children:

"The Duncans, including Mommy and the staff at FEJ have been distributing relief packages to the village as they have been able, but certainly the need in Haiti is only increasing with these storms."

What is...

...32 inches long and 28 pounds?

KOBE IS!!!! We got our update and he's so cute. Well we didn't actually get a picture yet but I'm pretty sure he's still cute. Something pretty noteworthy is that it says his disposition is "happy" - never before has an update called my little boy "happy" and after meeting him I wouldn't say he's unhappy but he's more stoic - he doesn't get real excited over much.

Wow he's really grown in the last month - I can't wait to see him! Oh yeah and it says he has a bump on his head - not sure if that means he fell down and bonked it or he has a mosquito bite. Hopefully it's nothing major - and I'm sure it's not, so I'll put my efforts worrying on something else.

That's pretty much it.

PS: Our file is still in IBESR.

Amusing Myself

I am finding it harder and harder to amuse myself while we are stuck in IBESR - and yes I officially consider us stuck. But this weekend I gave myself a headache while squinting at google earth for hours trying to find the creche. I re-traced our route a few times and then finally I spotted it, I found it!!!!! No really I did - and with that I give you a picture of the creche from space!
