Here it is....
Happy March from God’s Littlest Angels, Victor and Sylvie!
Hello, my name is Susie Schuelke. I am the updates coordinator here at God’s Littlest Angels Orphanage in Haiti. I am from Wisconsin, USA and I moved to Haiti in June. I am truly enjoying my position here at GLA and I look forward to sharing Berline’s smiles and growth with you until she comes home. You can expect to receive a monthly update from me. It will typically include photos of Berline, her height and weight, and a written update as well. The updates will typically be sent closer to the end of the month. Do not worry that you haven’t received an update until the month is over.
This month I wanted to add a little variety to your update by sending some candid photos. Adoptive parents tell me these are some of their favorites but it is not as easy to get all these photos together so I plan to send a varied and candid update about every 3 months. This month I attached a collage showing a day in the life of your child. I also wrote the update in first person from you child for a different perspective. I did my best to illustrate a day in the life of Berline. Hope you enjoy!
Berline is in our Urgence B nursery where our babies who are active but not yet standing and walking live. She is such a happy little girl who gets along with everyone and is very well loved. I am looking forward to sharing her journey with you until she is home with you. This month is a special update. I do not typically write it in first person but it is the theme for the month. Enjoy…

I had a fun day today. I called the call center first thing this morning and decided to be efficient and wrote down all the questions I had on a piece of paper to be able to ask all my questions quickly without having to go to each form and look for my question. I thought I was being smart. Well the lady on the other line proved me wrong. I started by saying that I had a few general questions and she did not even let me asked the questions because she had to know the exact form number and what line I had a question for. I was trying to explain that it was just a general question for the whole package... she said I’m sorry I cannot help you....I need the form number first. So all that to say that I had to go back and find each form number and ask a specific question with the specific number. That didn’t go to well. I decided to call back in the pm and got this nice gentleman on the phone that was actually helpful and was able to answer all my questions. He told me that I could switch to Citizenship instead of Permanent Residence in Canada so I will call back tomorrow and see what I need to do and what other forms I will have to fill out.

Nothing new and exciting happened since our referral except that the nursery is all done. The crib and everything is assembled. I just didn't decorate the room yet. I'll wait till I find something that strikes me and then start decorating.
I am looking forward to our monthly update and receive new pictures of our little sweetheart. I don't think I stopped smiling yet. I just stare at her beautiful happy face and just dream that I have her in my arms.
Last night I got an email from another adoptive mom saying that another dossier made its way through IBESR in 3 months. That is really awesome news once again.
