Brenda's Homecoming

Hi Everyone,

I don't know about at your house, but here at mine, summer is always a bit crazy. Trying to entertain and keep four boys from destroying themselves, each other or the house is almost a full time job. This is all my way of explaining my absence for the last few weeks! While the house is somewhat quiet, I wanted to take a moment and pass along some photos of Brenda's homecoming.
I had mentioned earlier that she traveled well and her mom was thrilled to have her home. She is doing well and I was most impressed with the fancy stroller she is sitting in in all the photos.
Pharah returned home last month as well and we will have two other returning to Haiti this month. Right now, three little ones are scheduled to come in the next month or so for surgery. Two to the Philly area and one here in Virginia. There are still many children waiting for surgery in Haiti and we are looking frantically for docs.

Hope your summer is going well!

Oh she looks so much better! Her momma looks happy to have her home too! :) I didn't realize that Pharah was also home now. I would love to see a new photo.

The story behind the chair. I had been looking at wheelchairs on the net and they were about $1000. So while at Dupont I asked a woman what the name of the chair she was using for her daughter. By the end of the conversation she said she had a wheel chair sitting at home from when her daugher was 3. If I picked it up I could have it for free. Then God just didn't let it go at a free wheel chair he sent a man along (my cousins friend who just so happened to call and ask how the baby was doing)to costume fit it for Brenda. He cut the back down and added the head piece so there was room for her head. I wonder if they are using it. She loved sitting in it. We took her for walks in it also. I think she should be able to walk with in the year(doctor thought maybe). If they use the chair it should help her build some muscles up in her back. The woman has another chair for the next size also.Plus she gave me a fold up one. God is good. kim
