Haiti Reunion 2009

This past weekend we were at our beloved Pennsylvania Haitian Adoptive Families Reunion. We get together with these families twice a year. Once in the summer for the big reunion, and in the winter for the Christmas Party. These annual get-togethers are, for us, sincerely two of the highlights of our year each year. The only way I can think to describe it is that it is like a glorious deep breath. Really, though, I know that it is something indescribable -- seeing what happens when these kids get together, and feeling what happens when these families get together -- and I know I really can't do it justice in writing, so I'm not even going to try to explain. But every family there understands. And that camaraderie and that kinship is something that is truly invaluable for each and every one of us. And that spirit helps to carry us through to the next get-together.

More photos are here.

How fun! One of these times we are going to come, because those other cute Haitian twins are family, and it has been too long since we have seen them!!

Great photos, as always, Heather. And I can never put into words what the reunions are like for me and my crew. Favorite times of the year, for sure.
