Latest News

This isn't much, but it at least we know that at least some of the kids are okay.

"Dear Hope Waiting Families,
I just received first hand news from Haiti just a few minutes ago from Harry Mardy. Both Harry and his brother Guesno are okay. Harry has not been able to reach Nadia the orphanage director. He did get in touch with one of the Nannies at the new orphanage and all the kids there are okay. As you know Hope for the little Angels was in the process of moving to another city and another orphanage. We know that some of the children were still at the old orphanage, I do not have word on these children and I do not have the names of these children. Also we had a couple of kids in foster care and I have no word on those kids. Harry did say that him mother did not make it and his sister Kenia did not make it. I think that some of you have met Kenia she has come to the hotel during the parent trips with Harry's wife Pascal. I am so grateful for the news we received today and I will continue to pass on information to you as I get it.
Your adoption coordinator and friend,

I don't know for sure which orphanage Collin was in at the time of the quake. I'm hoping it's the new one. My heart breaks for Harry and his family. He's such a good man and does so much to make sure that Collin and the other children are taken care of.

Oh man, I guess we just keep our fingers crossed and keep praying. I'm so sad for Harry too and I don't even know who he is.

Oh I am so glad you have received some information. So sorry to hear of the loss of Harry's family. We are all praying that Collin is among those at the new orphanage and that the little ones are safe. Keep your chin up!
