  • Au RevoirWe had a lovely day today! Stayed at the pool this afternoon, and guess what cutie finally loves the pool? Josué!! The owner of the villa had a special Haitian meal made for us this evening, as our last night Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | Jun 2, 2017
  • Take 2 Our new translator Frantzdy walked with us the 3 kilometers to the crèche this morning to avoid the terrible traffic. The crèche kept Samuel home from school today this time. The IBESR social worker DID come today- several hours late- Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | Jun 1, 2017
  • The Best Laid Plans...Traffic is notoriously bad in this area and today of all days the government decided to fix a particularly atrocious stretch of the main road that has been underwater, between our villa and the crèche. We waited for 2.5 hours Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 31, 2017
  • La Mer FrappéThanks to some wisdom from a super mama friend Christie who adopted her own little ones from a third world orphanage and is adept at dealing with the orphanage emotional baggage, we tried some new tactics today in responding to Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 30, 2017
  • Kids: 1 Parents: 0We thought that a day back at the crèche would give the boys some sense of routine, but today was a challenge as we struggle to implement discipline on two little boys who have never been disciplined and aren't used Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 29, 2017
  • Bòn fèt manmanMeant to post this yesterday...with it being Mother's Day in Haiti, I couldn't help but think of Samuel and Josué's birth mother and her painful act of giving up her kids. Their crèche director says that their birth parents do Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 29, 2017
  • Legliz We picked up the boys at the crèche this morning and dressed them in adorable matching outfits my mom got them (twinning is winning) and our driver took us back to the neighborhood where we are staying. The gentleman who Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 28, 2017
  • Nouvo MounWe brought the boys back to the pool for lunch and some fun. Being a Saturday, there were lots of Haitians at the pool today, and the boys were very timid at first and apprehensive about being in the area Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 27, 2017
  • Happy Friday!Had a good day playing at the crèche today. The boys love using Derek as a jungle gym. Samuel being older is quite independent but still likes to be loved on. Can never get enough hugs from lovey little Josué- Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 26, 2017
  • Tré choThe heat got to me today- it was hot even for the Haitians. I told Josué to get out of the fridge for what seemed like the millionth time (and I use the term "fridge" loosely- it keeps things about Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 25, 2017
  • Field Trip- La PiscineWith the accompaniment of a translator approved by IBESR, we were allowed to leave the crèche with the boys today to take them to lunch and the pool. The boys loved the ice cubes in their mango juice- not sure Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 24, 2017
  • Nou NouWe thank God for the loving nanny who has Samuel and Josué in her charge. She is a sweet woman and the reason I think our boys seem well-adjusted compared to some of the other children at the crèche. The Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 24, 2017
  • Reality Sinks InToday we spent a lot of time with all the kids shaking down trees for mangoes. There are also some silly pictures below- we had a dance party and some sweet little guys joined us! Today was also a day in Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 24, 2017
  • Family FunToday we brought the boys underwear- they loved it. In fact Samuel kept dropping his drawers to show his friends his underwear (will need to break that habit). We also taught them how to brush their teeth which they were Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 24, 2017
  • We MeetI guess our adoption journey officially started in September 2015 when we pressed "submit" to apply to the only U.S. agency that was open for Haiti adoptions. We started a flurry of paperwork, interviews, financial scrutiny, and immigration clearances for Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 24, 2017
  • Beauty Out of AshesEvery adoption story is born out of brokenness. Orphans are created when parents die or are unable to take care of their children. In Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, many of the children waiting for Posted by AdoptingDC in Beauty Out of Ashes | May 23, 2017
