Rob and Jessica went to Haiti again for more bonding and also to help with a medical team. I've had an awful time putting these pictures on this blog so they're not in the order I wanted them to be. I've had to put them on one at a time. This first picture is Rob and Elmise saying good-bye. She has tears in her eyes. This is a sad day.

Jessica and Armon saying good-bye. This is a hard day.

I love this picture of Rob and Jessica with the little dark hand on Jessica's shoulder.

Elmise is so sweet.

Rob and Elmise. Rob was determined to make her smile. One day it was raining out, Elmise ran outside, spread her arms out, held her head back so the rain was hitting her face. When Rob saw her he ran out and stood with her; she began twirling around so he twirled around with her. They both ended up all wet and even muddy, but they had fun together, and that was all that mattered!

Rob and Jessica with the birth mother. They are good friends, she is so thankful that her children are going to have a good life. I can't imagine giving my children away but she was desperate with no means of feeding or clothing them and one son killed by gunfire. We have no idea what life is like in a country like Haiti.

Below is Jessica and Armon on a good day! I love the look on his face!

Lord, thank You for these sweet children. Thank You for their mother who only wants what is best for her children. Please help this adoption process to go quickly.

Wow...I can't imagine how hard it must be to bond and love on these children and then have to say goodbye and not bring them home...hope the whole process comes through soon! They're adorable!
