We are so grateful to all of you who have reached out to us to see how you can help "our kids" in Haiti after the earthquake. We are particularly concerned about Christopher, the adorable two-year-old with sickle-cell disease. Previously, when Christopher would suffer a sickle-cell attack, the orphanage staff would take him to a hospital just outside Port au Prince for emergency treatments. We had tentatively arranged with Tulane University to bring Christopher to New Orleans for a more sustainable and preventative treatment plan, and were working out the details when the earthquake hit. If Christopher's treatment plan was unacceptable then, it is impossible now, and we have accelerated our plans to bring him to New Orleans. Please check in for more details in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, if you want to make a real difference in the life of one needy Haitian orphan, please consider donating a few dollars to cover his expenses. Tulane has put together an incredibly generous package but we still need your help to cover travel and other expenses.
