Last Day

Today is our final day at Quisqueya. Even though it has only been a week, I have made family. Grace the neurologist, Junith, the Hatian American OB, Matt and Emma, Ki Ki my interpreter, Kathleen, Lorraine and Dee the midwives at Diquini, Shawn the videographer, Wendy, our roommate, Art and Miquette, our hosts, Bly, Robert, Morio, Roodly, Alex and several other young Hatian interpreters, Dan our driver (and Miquette's brother). I have made friends and some family. It has been good. I am content to go home, but I am blessed to have come. I will miss Ki Ki, he is my Haitian son, and the hope of Haiti. I got word this morning that the 31 week baby survived the night. Yet another miracle in Haiti. It has indeed been a week of miracles. We fly to Ft. Lauderdale this morning and back to KC Monday morning. I'm hoping for a much needed massage and manicure once I hit the states. A walk on the beach might be in order as well. Yes there are beaches here in Haiti, but the once we had access to were polluted. I look forward to blogging more in depth over the next few days about my experiences. Stay tuned...
