Friday morning I was able to start the journey home to Mole after being in the states for 53 days. It’s the longest I’ve ever been away from my family. My time out was focused on recovery: from the car accident, from painful back surgery, & from ripping scar tissue. Jose flew out of the […]

Safe AND Secure?

When I tell people I live in Haiti I’m often asked one of these two questions: 1 – Do you feel safe? 2 – Do you feel secure? The answer to both of those questions is YES! And although they sound like the same question – they couldn’t be more different. When I was a […]

The Mole Summer 2014 Quote Book Visit her blog This summer because we did not have many teams we spent a lot of time hanging out with the Castillo kids whether it was just at meal time, our secret project, movie night, or activity days. While we hung out with them there were many times […]

Every Day…

We thought of you with tears today, But that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, Every day before that too. We think of you in silence, Though the kids often speak your name. We laugh & share our memories, While hugging on your picture frame. Your memory is our keepsake, With which we’ll […]

Gabriel was born on July 21st – 8 weeks early! I wasn’t able to even hold him before he was rushed to the NICU where he spent many weeks on a breathing machine. Twice we were told that he would probably not live through the night. The tears stream down my cheeks just thinking about […]

No Exceptions?

Unknown

Our family rarely visits  amusement parks in the states because it’s a little crazy going with all of our kids. There’s nothing worse than standing in line for 30 minutes only to get to the front and see that sign that says,  “You must be 48inches tall to ride”. That means the girls can go […]

My Kids…Your Cameras

DSC_0300

When teams are in Haiti – we ask for their camera cards each night at dinner. Then we upload several pictures while the teams blog about their day. This is one of my favorite things to do because you get to learn all about their day just by seeing all their pics. Not only that […]

Are They Following Our Cues?

When I was little my dad worked as a policeman, fireman, and pastor-man! :D I always thought it was so cool because we knew the latest and greatest that was happening in our town. We didn’t have to follow the fire trucks or police sirens– we already knew where they were going. One of my […]
