Paperwork and giggles

Well today has been an extra long day filled with so much. After a pancake breakfast Haitian style-yummm! We spent the morning in Port-au-Prince to get some of our paperwork done, everything went so smoothly. Driving through the city is so different. When we are all packed in the car, hot and sweaty, it is silent. We are taking it all in. So different from our world. In the afternoon we came back to a late lunch of yummy sandwiches with the crust cut off. Emi(pronounced Emee)finally opened up to us this afternoon and we had lots of giggles and smiles. She actually is responding to us and playing, I was worried. We spent the afternoon in the playground with all the older kids. They are all so precious and so accepting. I am known as momma to all of them. Today I showed Emi the pics of the kids and she smiled. She recognizes them from the pics by her bed. I am teaching her all about you and saying your name over and over. We are so amazed at the Creche. It is like an oasis in the middle of a sad land.
We love and miss you all!
