A few weeks ago I had my first dream about visiting the orphanage to meet Vania. Dreams can seem so real at times and very emotional. I was so excited to arrive at the O taking each child by their shoulders and turning them around to see if it was her. Eventually a staff member came up and told me that she was not there and I would need to wait a week to see her. My whole family had traveled to meet her . Disappointed we decided to plan some excursions, go sight seeing and shopping while we waited the week... IN YOUR DREAMS ! WHERE'S MY BABY !!!!!!
The picture above is Vania's referral picture. She came to the O in January arriving on the last day our parent trip was there. I don't know how long it was before they took her picture holding up her name for the camera but this had to be one of the first pictures taken. The look in her big beautiful eyes is so empty. I can't imagine what she must have been feeling.
The next picture received in March was such a comfort seeing her smiling and well. I am so grateful to all of the staff at the O for taking great care of Vania and all the other children. They are mothers to many !!! The hardest job ever ! Thanks Hope for Little Angels of Haiti for taking Vania in , caring for and loving her. PS.. 1 month and 1 week and backup is on the way to Haiti:)
