Cite Soleil

I keep an eye out on the internet for photos and news of Cite Soleil. This is where Kyle and Owen were born. These photos, some of the best I've seen, were taken by Jan Sochor, a great photographer... click here (scroll down to see these photos) and click here (scroll to the right to see these photos). You can find more of his photos of Haiti if you click through the "photoblog archive" on the Jan Sochor photo site (click here).

Those really are some of the best pictures out there of Cite Soleil.

Even after four trips to Haiti and looking at countless pictures, I know I am still not able to fully absorb the depths of the dire poverty so, so many people are living in each and every day of their lives!

I know it well... and the only thing missing is the smell.

Wow. This just breaks my heart. I see my daughters face in every photo. I am also angry, things in Haiti need to change and they need to change now.

We have to work for change. No one should have to live like that. No one. Especially the children who are born into that place and others like it. Thank you to Kyle and Owen's parents for loving them enough to let them be adopted. Oh my beautiful, healthy, fantastic grandbabies - I love you.

Heather,
I think you know I've been to India many times and been to/through many slums but have never....ever....seen it this bad. I never thought I'd ever see anything more heartbreaking than the huge slums of India, but I just did....in your Cite Soleil photos. There are simply no words...just beyond words...

Heather, thank you so much for your comment on my blog, and for your prayers. Parents have mobilized, big time. The gov't IS listening and there is a little "secret club" with savvy and pull working on things too- hopefully, all is not lost. I am just going to keep seeing us as a family fo three :) blessings xoxox L. and Malia
