Headed to Haiti....

The following are headed to Haiti with some fantastic friends of ours (who are going to visit their children that are waiting to come home!):

A large check to get the ball rolling
Power Of Attorney ~ so the pastor can sign on our behalf to adopt those beautiful children
Letter of Intent ~ just what it is...our letter of intent to adopt and make them part of our family

And two small but wonderful gifts.  Laminated photo's of our family here for each of them.  Something they can carry around and look at.

A blanket for each to snuggle with at night. 
Djemson's blanket
Richarmie's blanket

While the blankets may not seem like a big deal to anyone...it's a big deal to us.  Each of our children have received a homemade blanket when they were born.  A blanket that was intended to be used for a long, long time.  Buddy's has had to be sewn back together numerous times because he's used it every night for the last 4-1/2 years. (Still boggles my mind)  While I know it's hot in Haiti, and they probably won't need to snuggle up under it, it is always nice to have something made by someone who just loves you.
