A Happy Birthday in Haiti

On the same day that India turned 2, her brother in Haiti also turned 2. October 7th is a bittersweet day for me. On the one hand, I am reminded of the amazing miracle of India and the day I gave birth to her. On the other hand, it's a painful day because Keanan is not with us to celebrate his birthday, too. I was feeling very melancholy about it, but my spirits were lifted when I got the pictures of his celebration at the orphange. I was sad on his birthday, but look how happy he is! Look how loved he is! It calms my heart when I see his smiling face, and I'm reminded how well he is cared for.

Would you join me in praying for him right now? Let's pray hard that next year, he and India celebrate their 3rd birthday together, at home with our whole family.


  1. Kristen, My prayer went up. I'm hopeful that next year you have more babies than you know what to do with, sister.

    With love,
