Container of donations will arrive in Haiti this month!

I spoke to the guy in Fall River NS and he said the container should arrive in Haiti on September 29th. While reading the GLA Canada site, I came across this post. “CONTAINER number 7 from Canada has just left the warehouse in Fall River NS bound for Haiti. This one contains items donated from Quebec and the Maritimes PLUS some badly needed construction machinery. We say a huge THANK YOU to the hundreds of Canadians who have donated over 300,000 pounds of relief items for Haiti. These containers are being unloaded and the relief supplies being given to needy people NOW! (September) We will be sending one more container from Yarmouth Nova Scotia on September 20th.”   

THANK YOU ALL who donated items, money and helped with the packing. The people in Haiti are still living in tents after all this time and are in desperate need of supplies.

Another baby girl ready to be adopted at GLA

I had to share this blog post. The person writing this blog is a nurse at GLA.

She posted a picture of a 6 month old girl called Darline. Blog post
This precious little girl is ready to get adopted. Like she said “The information from my assessment, together with formal medical and psychological examinations will help our orphanage staff to match this gorgeous baby girl with a family on our waiting list.”

She could end up in our family, with my friend who is also adopting from GLA, a family in France, US... Where ever she goes, I’m sure she’s going to have a good life ahead of her.

Finally! Some adoption news from GLA!

This is what Dixie posted on her blog “I have set at my desk from 7:30 AM until 8 PM trying to get 11 proposals out to waiting adoptive parents, writing letters that I needed to do before I left, and trying to answer a few emails too!”

This is it! Proposals are starting again after the earthquake. I am so happy. 2 weeks ago, I got an email from a girl I got to know through adoption blogs. She is from Alberta and she received a proposal for twin boys. I was so happy to hear that. I knew that Dixie should be just around the corner to announce that she was going to do the same. 8 months has passed since the earthquake and things are starting to move again.

So what those this means for us “11 proposals are being sent out” Well they have about 20 some dossiers at GLA and 11 are being sent out so we might be in the first 11 and if not, there are only 10-15 more to go. I am confident that things are going to start happening for us. Continue to Pray!
