Our last morning in Haiti was pretty relaxed. Packing didn’t take long, and we sat around playing games and talking until it was time to leave. Customs, immigration, and everything else went completely without a hitch, which we are very grateful for! Our flights were smooth and the view out the window was gorgeous, especially as the sun went down on our last flight.
As we walked out of the secure area and turned toward the baggage carousel, someone said, “I think I see skirts.” As we walked along, those skirts (and plenty of pants, too) spread out across the walkway with signs, smiles, and lots of phones pointing at us.
And then the two big groups met, and there was hugging and more smiles and maybe even some tears all around.
I just want to take a moment and say thank you to everyone who read and commented on the blog while we were in Haiti. One evening in Labaleine we sat around the living room reading the posts and comments up to that point. It was so encouraging to hear all the supporting words from back home!
