June Family Self Portrait

We took this right before we left for Haiti and knew when we'd come back that we would be feeling and processing things after our trip. We play super heroes in our house all the time and Jude and Zane can't get enough of dressing up, pretending to save the world and battling the bad guys. As Pat and I are processing all that we witnessed and experienced in Haiti we're realizing there's no super heroes in the situation. One person can't come in and save Haiti, change all the problems there and do it in a week. I'll be writing a lot more about our trip later this week but I honestly don't know where to start. It's been hard to have some time to think and reflect on the trip when we jumped right back into parent mode along with the fact that we both came back sick and still can't get rid of the stomach bug we seem to have. It's been a lot of down time with taking turns sleeping and of course cuddling with the boys, who we missed a ton. We are beyond thankful that we were able to go to Haiti and learn so much from the people there. Looking forward to sharing some photos and stories with you from the trip but for now we'll be drinking gatarade and hoping we feel better.

I adore this photo, especially your eyes in this, Maya. Bless you, I'm sure your bodies and minds are doing a lot of processing. (Here's hoping your bellies are done processing ASAP!!!!)
