Why are you moving to Haiti?!?
From the moment we announced our plans to move to Haiti, nearly everyone’s response has been…Why??? If you haven’t had the opportunity to ask us WHY personally, let me take this opportunity to answer your questions…
Why are you moving to Haiti? Practically speaking we want to love on the children of Ayiti.
Why- Because Our God loves us as orphans, and commands us to care for the Widowed and Orphaned. In a sense we are all orphans in this world unless we have been adopted into our Fathers family, no one deserves this kind of love. We desire to love the children of Haiti as our Heavenly Father loves us.
Are you taking Willow? Of course! She will have the opportunity to grow up bilingual and with a firm grasp of our love for people and with a thankful heart of gigantic proportions.
Is it safe? Hmm...We’ve spent a good bit of time in Haiti and never felt insecure or in trouble. There are places in Aiyti that aren’t safe, and people who want to harm others. We are taking every precaution available to us to protect our family and make wise decisions. My family’s safety comes to mind about every third thought that passes through my head. Needless to say, our safety is very important to me.
What about diseases? Just like America, Ayiti is full of diseases. We will take every precaution to protect ourselves from disease and have a magnificent support system in the case of an emergency.

We are trying to rent the cabin as well. We would love to be a blessing to someone else and provide a low cost unique home for someone who can use it. If you know someone that might be interested in the house, please pass our info on to them.
I thought you loved living in N.C.? Let me tell you I DO! It is crazy how hard I have worked to to make a home for us near the best rivers in the southeast. I have worked hard to build a life around flowing rivers and trails.
