While Patrick and I have been in Haiti for two weeks, there has been an amazing team of people at home taking care of our lives.
Thank you prayer warriors Colleen, Jenny (and many more) – we have felt God’s protection and grace during this trip.
Thank you (tired) grandparents – you have picked up vomit (both dog and kid), cooked dinner, checked homework, walked our dogs, sorted laundry, read books, packed lunches, tucked in at night, and loved our kids SO WELL. Noah and Brady will cherish the time they spent with you.
Thank you Katie and Tony for taking our kids, cheering them on at baseball games, and distracting them with crazy fun sleepovers – at times when they really needed it.
Dear friends- Finneys, Orlandos, Vinsons, Stovers, Korsvalls. Thank you for very early and late airport rides. Thank you for feeding and hanging with our parents. Thank you for loving our kids (and sending them surprise packages in the mail…all the way from Ohio). Thank you for the love you’ve shown us while we are here in Haiti. We couldn’t do life without you.
Thank you supportive bosses and co-workers. Patrick and I are so fortunate to work for and with encouraging people.
Thank you baseball crew. We love baseball and play it a lot. Coaches Dave, Curtis, Brett, James – thank you for the rides and for covering for Patrick these past two weeks. Carlos, Auna, and Erin – thank you for getting Noah where he needed to be.
We are so grateful for everybody’s help (financially, emotionally, spiritually) in getting us here to meet our son.
We’ve said our goodbyes and are headed to the airport shortly. We can’t wait to see our oldest sons.
