Just a few photos from our Haiti trip.

Christan House of Tomorrow's Children Orphanage, Port-Au-prince, Haiti
They remembered us.

My two daughters and I with some of the children.  They love touching us, even our hair, and they are so loving.  We constantly had children on our laps and standing and sitting all around us.  It's the best feeling in the world!

We have them each children a gift bag of goodies.  The boys had never seen a toy Matchbox Car and didn't even know how to play with them.  I put a track together that was given to us, and I would make car and honking sounds.  They would cover their mouths and giggle at me.  Then I would point and say, "ou", which is you, and they would give the car a push on the track.   Even the 16 year olds were playing.  Something so simple brought so much joy for these boys

This is my 25 year old daughter Jenny and I with 4 of the orphans.   She has founded the Non-Profit Organization, Hearts Helping Haiti, which is to help the poor orphan children in Haiti.   I am so amazed and proud of her for what she is doing!

I've been a customer of your store, but never realized we have more than ATCs in common. I also work with orphanages. I spend most of my time in Jamaica, but next month I am going to Ghana. Nice to know I have a kindred spirit out there!
