Mwen Sonje Ou Anpil Encore

It's safe to say that I have allowed too much time to pass since my last blog post and for that I apologize. I have spent the last 2 weeks in Haiti, flew to LA and less than 24 hours later flew to Kansas. Needless to say I don't care to see another airplane for quite some time!

As per usual, I have downloaded my Haiti photos and am attaching some of my favorites here.

Amonese taking a break from cooking in the Haitian kitchen.

After praying for Tahl, I asked her if I could take her picture, she nodded and then
lowered her face and placed her hand on her chest. Such a tender moment.

Gibson standing outside of his house when we came to bring his family
beans and rice.

Momma holding baby while watching a basketball game. (I have a couple
other views of this picture and had troubles deciding which to post here, so
you may be seeing those later). This baby is the snuggliest, most mild tempered baby
I have ever had the pleasure of holding. Plus she was mean mugging it the entire 2 weeks. So cute.

The sweetest little girl you could ever meet, Watialene. 

When visiting the church across the valley, this boy was standing with his homemade
toy outside a neighboring house. He had such a bright smile and I love to see such
beautiful innovations made by children, I had to ask for a photo.

This year, through my friend's company, Elisha C. we were able to award 41 scholarships to children, teens and young adults to go to school next year. Unfortunately we weren't able to hand out scholarships to everyone. During the presentation of the scholarships, some children looked through the slats in the walls. Hopefully this next year we will be able to raise even more funds and find more supporters so children like Batony will be able to be on the inside next time. To check out our scholarship program and how to bring economic stability to Haiti, check out Elishac.org and Elishac.com

Oh my goodness... This is easily the most stunning set of portraits I think you've ever posted. While the rest of our generation of "photographers" forgets our "skills" and lets our capabilities dwindle and wane with the laziness of phone snapshots, you have only gotten stronger and more refined.
Beautiful, beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
