In Septemeber 2008, I traveled 6000 miles to Haiti's Kenscoff mountains. My mission: to care for some of the orphaned and abandoned, the sick, malnourished and premature infants of this beautiful but beleagured Caribbean nation.

A Non-Endorsement

It seems that a few individuals are using blogs I wrote and photographs I posted during my time in Haiti, to raise money for charities that they claim to work for. At least one of these individuals is acting fraudulently. I haven't given anyone permission to use my blog posts to help raise money for any charity or charitable work. I do not currently endorse the work of ANY orphanage in Haiti, including the one I worked at. I cannot do so until I witness some excellent and ethical adoption and child care practices along with  financial transparency, first hand. I would encourage generous donors, especially christian donors to carefully and prayerfully consider where they sow their financial seed.

Susan, I came across your blog years ago, because I was interested in GLA. I would very much like to know why you no long promote GLA or orphanages in Haiti.
Since I was about 15, GLA has been on my heart, I believe by God because it's a desire that didn't go away in spite of time and changing priorities through the years. But I have felt a check in my spirit regarding it since the uncertain ending of your time there and your blog.
I would very much appreciate it if you would be willing to contact me and explain your behind-the-scenes perspective.
God has given me limited resources, both with my life and my money and I so desperately want to use them wisely and in the best possible way. Thus my desire to know more of the what is behind your cryptic words.

(if you would prefer this comment does not stay on your blog, please delete it -- but I would be very grateful if you would consider contacting me)
