Donna, this one's for you.

You may remember, back in January, I blogged a little about my friend who lives and works in Haiti. Kurt is the director of a relief and development organization there, and as you can imagine he has got his work cut out for him currently.

He came through town this week, and we were lucky to host him at our place for a few days. This was his first time meeting baby J, of course, and she took to him immediately.
I've blogged before about how blessed I feel to have friends both near and far who are real and important parts of my life, our life, and now J's life as well. She won't be seeing much of her "Uncle" Kurt, of course, but it sure was fun for her to meet him. And fun for me to have him here for a while, popping in and out as he visited Seattle friends, and figuring out how to get the best deal on printer toner for him to haul back to Haiti.
Relief efforts are ongoing and money is still needed, as you probably know. MCC, the organization Kurt works for is doing great things. You can read more about what they are up to in Haiti here.
Oh, and in case you're wondering about the title of this post - Donna is Kurt's mom. ♥


  1. He was here?! Glad you got to see him, very sweet to see him with J. Wish we could have seen him too :(
