Another happy and sad day for Haiti

We were so happy this morning. The clinic was busy and it looked so sparkly clean. We were nearing the end of construction for Michelda's family's house. Emily came to visit and thank us for helping to set up eye surgeries for two orphans. They are leaving tomorrow for the surgery . Our Emergency Child was sponsored. I saw a picture of Samuel 1 new baby boy and found out that Samuel 2 got married last week. It was not too dreadfully hot and everything seemed to be going smoothly.

Then in came a 5 day old baby weighing between 2 1/2 and 3 lbs. she had been in
Yesterday and seemed okay but today
Seemed almost lifeless. Dr Sem worked hard on her and we quickly sent her to St Damien, but she died en route. When
Pouchon came back he quietly said,
"She didn't make it. "There was quiet as
we never really know how to process
This sadness, A little life so fragile and so
Short. We will locate her mother tomorrow( she was not the one who brought the baby in) to see if she is okay. The mother is very young. We talk about what little we know about the mother's circumstances .
I cry because I still can't accept that this little One never had a chance because she was born in the wrong place at the wrong time.
