We overslept today.  I kept hitting the snooze button and before you know it, it’s 7:30 and the house is all still asleep.  Emma made it late to school and we are just getting moving around here this morning.  I think the past 4 days are finally catching up to me.  My body is telling me that it needs some attention.  So today I plan to try and relax and get some therapy… “good thing I consider cleaning as therapy.”

Checked Facebook this morning.  Tim who is fighting on the behalf of all the kids at Heartline headed out again to the Embassy in Haiti this morning and in his words, “good feeling about today”.  He was there yesterday from 7:30-4 with no luck on getting the kids processed.  Who knows…maybe today a miracle will happen.  It’s all in God’s hands and timing and for that reason although I’m extremely stressed out every minute of the day, I do have total peace about the when and how these kids will come home.

Dave and I were interviewed yesterday for the Spartanburg Journal.  We really have been OVERWHELMED by the love and support our local community has shown us.  I’ve always known that crisis will bring people together.  You see it happen over and over again.  But to be sitting in the seat where people are coming together because you are the one in the crisis… this is a first for us and we are feeling so loved and supported.

Here is the link to the article that came out today in the paper.  I think they did a great job capturing our heart and our journey and our story.

Frankie lives at Heartline.  Right now they have turned the home Frankie used to live and a few other houses in the area into a hospital of sorts.  Heartline brought a team of doctors and nurses in to do triage in their local area.  John and Beth have lived in Haiti for 20 years.  If you are looking for places to give, they could use all the help they can get.  You can give to www.haiti-relief.com  We recommend them 110% and your money will go to great use through giving to their organization.  There are many organizations you can give to but if you ask us personally where to give, we’ll turn around and tell you Heartline Ministries.

So today will be another day of waiting.  We are waiting on news that Frankie is on his way.  Until then we try and attempt moving on in normal day life if that is even something that is possible to do.
