A baby at the Haiti clinic

As I turned on my phone after landing in Miami, two text messages popped up!
One message from Jack and one from Lizzy both reading , "baby born on the floor of the clinic. " I text Lizzy and she immediately called. A woman showed up on a moto, no one was there. She delivered on the floor of the clinic. Alahandra , Santilla's daughter found the woman and baby and ran to get Lizzy at church. Lizzy called one of the midwives who just took the birthing class. Using one of the sterile birthing kits, with the assistance of Lizzy and Ferlande, finished cutting the cord and the delivery. Mother and baby are doing well and now resting
In the emergency room.
