a quick update...

I'm currently out of the country...more specifically, on a cruise ship in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean (I can't believe I have wifi!). Unfortunately for me and everyone else on the ship they had a significant outbreak of norovirus during the last sailing. So I'm not feeling so well, but I will try to update my blog when I can.

More importantly, I urge you all to check out That's Church, if you haven't already. Virginia Montanez, the writer of the blog, has been following and trying to help one of the many difficult situations in Haiti:

Two amazing women from Pittsburgh run an orphanage in Haiti that was destroyed by the earthquake. They, along with many back in the U. S., are doing what they can to get the children from the orphanage out of danger and back to the U.S. or somewhere safe. If there is anything you can do to help, please do. The situation is extremely serious.


  1. Thanks for this, Amy. A friend of mine is very suddenly fostering a child from Haiti (could be from an infant to a teenager). This is all late-breaking - everyone now talking about how they can help in that way, etc. I'm wondering if this is the same place you've referenced here. I am fuzzy on details (just heard late last night about this child) but... will update you and others when I get a chance.

  2. Hope you're feeling better!

  3. Hope you have a great time, relax, and feel much better, Amy!
