We're Going Back to Haiti!

A year without loving on some orphans is just too long.  

Plus, the first trip was so amazing for Mackenzie and I,
that we have to go back.
And we're taking Eric with us this time.  

Because little boys love for grown men to hoist them up on their shoulders and parade them around.

Because little boys love to be tossed in the air by a daddy
(even if it's not their daddy).  

Because older boys like to play soccer with men who are too old
to keep up
(but think that they might still have a chance).  

And because this Momma's heart hurts when I think about the longing in those little sweeties' hugs.  

And how they quickly fell asleep, feeling safe in my arms.  

And how much JOY their smiles brought to the deepest parts
of my soul.  

We're going back to Haiti.  To love on some kids. 

BTW, here's a shortened video of our first trip.  If anyone is thinking that they might want to join us sometime, get in touch with me and we'll talk!
