We made it safely to Haiti and Emiline is precious
What an amazing place! I can't believe how beautiful the children are and so much love. We got to meet our sweet Emiline(pronounced Emileen or Emi for short) When we were introduced to Emi she put her cheek next to mine and within minutes was fast asleep on my shoulder. After waking we ate lunch together, Billy's Cheerios were a big hit! One of the babies we brought she likes. She loves the stacking cups (Angel) as do all the kids. They are content with just one. After some play time alone we went to the baby room, where Emiline stays. There were around 15 babies all just playing on the floor looking for love with only 2 toys. They are very content to just be around you and hang on you(and yes I was peed on, I couldn't say no to those beautiful faces) The facility here is amazing, I can't believe how nice. We haven't got much of a smile out of Emiline but I saw her interact with one of her aunties and she was giggling like crazy. She is crawling and very mellow(just wait until she gets home to our crazy family) The drive out here was very humbling, we have so much. Continue to pray for us and what God will have for us to do here, for a great connection and sleep.
