He’s on his way to the USA!

If any of you have been following my blog the past few weeks you know how much this whole Haiti thing has shook me to the core and that there have been some adoptive children I have been rooting for to make their way back to the US to be with their forever families. Well, word is that Ronel and his dad got on a Military flight this evening and should be in the sky as we speak headed to Miami. Their wait to get home is not over, as there is additional processing here in the states, medical exams (and it sounds like Ronel and his father are both now getting sick…funny how sleeping on an Embassy floor in close range with hundreds of people, being stressed beyond humanly thinkable and eating MRE’s can weaken your immune system, huh…who would have thunk?!) but they will be on our soil…

While it is a little bittersweet to think that Ronel had to leave his homeland on such bad terms, I have no doubt just by reading the blogs of this family that the Parkers will do everything they can to help offset that loss of culture for him, talking about Haiti, eating familiar foods, music, etc. There will be struggles, but he will be home soon…and for that I am extremely happy for them and feel a small kernel of hope for humanity.

Dear Haiti, I have never met you…but you continue to inspire me and provide me hope. I hope to get to meet you someday.

Your Secret Admirer,
Anne
