Less than a month!

In less than a month, we will be traveling to Haiti. Unless there is a miracle, we will not be bringing Kenson home this time because he still needs a Haitian passport and a US visa in order to board an airplane and leave Haiti. We will first travel outside of Port Au Prince to Conleigh's orphanage. It sounds like it is a 45 mile drive that takes around 3 hours. I'm especially interested to see the countryside of Haiti. This will be our first time meeting Conleigh. We also hope to meet her birth mom and do some painting at the orphanage. After that, we will be visiting Kenson at his orphanage. We will do some sight seeing, work in the orphanage, and go to the Embassy to apply for Kenson's visa. A couple of friends and I made textured busy blankets to take for every baby in the orphanage so I will be taking those with us and attaching those to the cribs. We've got our flights made and our hotel rooms booked and have started to get things ready to pack up. The trip will be here before we know it.
