The right ending...

For those of you who have been following this blog since my first trip to Haiti you will remember this awesome little kid!

You may remember my friend (and probably one of the coolest and most caring people I know on this earth) Barbies blog post about his mom "Momma Emmanual" as she has come to be affectionately known by many. If not, you can read about it here http://barbieboots.blogspot.com/2010/04/depths.html

Well good news came this weekend..after tense moments, which were handled by the amazing women of Heartline's Womens program, Momma Emmanual gave birth to a little boy! So happy for this women as she has lost so much yet remained one of the most beautifully optimistic people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

I have often read stats about the number of women and children who die needlessly in childbirth. Had not Beth, Cookie and the women of Heartline been there things may have ended badly for this wonderful women and her new baby boy....Its one thing to read about such things but quite another to know firsthand someone like Momma Emmanual and to think about an alternative outcome.... Heartline provides care that makes those alternatives less likely...

Thank you ladies... Truly...

feed just one

My friend Licia posted this tonight on the Real Hope for Haiti facebook page..brought instant tears to my eyes! I know we all can't make a difference in places like Haiti but we all can be a bit more kind to our fellow human beings right here at home....Please remember this as the "holiday" season approaches!
