Sadness beyond sadness in Haiti

The last thing a struggling country like Haiti needs is a catastrophe. They have no infrastructure to deal with anything as simple as a car accident let alone a catstrophic earthquake of significant magnitude.

My heart aches for all the people of Haiti who now must live in a new form of chaos and poverty. Please keep the people of Haiti in your thoughts and prayers as we have many, many people that live in Haiti that we know and care about. The orphanage our children lived in, suffered some structural damage, but everyone is alright. I can't explain to you the sadness in my heart to know how many people are currently suffering beyond description.

My two boys' families live in Port-au-Prince and we may never, ever know if they have survived this catastrophe. I pray for my little boys that they find peace in their hearts and we eventually find that their families miraculously survived. This is a sad, sad day for our family and all of Haiti.

Praying as well. My heart is absolutely broken over this, for our boys here in the states and for all of the people of Haiti.

It's shocking isn't it? I hope all our birth families are safe.
