One year ago today we were in Haiti having just met Bedeline for the first time. In some ways much has happened in the last year, but in the adoption realm we've hardly progressed at all. It's been hard not to give up hope and we must admit that there have been times when we have, but we're still holding on, and there's a small chance that June 1st may bring us some progress (too complicated to explain, just pray!!!).
In the mean time, I'm sure you've heard about the food riots in Haiti, leading to the ousting of the Prime Minister. A new PM was recently appointed and everyone's hoping for change and progress. At Friends of the Orphans, where Sean works, they are planning on a 40% increase in food costs for the year, which adds up to nearly $500,000. It's so difficult to just sit here in Minnesota eating all kinds of food and going to the Dr. whenever we need to. Our eyes have definitely been opened and we realize just how blessed we are. Please continue to pray not only for our situation, but for all the people of Haiti and the other countries effected by the food shortage.
A story about Paul Farmer was on 60 minutes last night. You can watch it by following the link below.
We hope that you're all well and we so appreciate the blog checking, lack of questions and prayers. Love you!
The Baby Breininger Blog
Welcome friends! In 2007 we started this blog to share the status of our adoption process. After an excrutiatingly long wait, we travelled to Haiti in June 2009 and brought our girl home on July 15. Now this blog is a place for us to share pictures and videos, give updates and brag about how wonderful she is. Enjoy!
