One of my good friends from highschool was adopted from Haiti so I know this country is near and dear to her heart as she has many biological family members who live there.
My friend who's wedding we went to in Italy last April is also in Haiti right now while her hubby is deployed to the Middle East. She's been there for about a month and thankfully is safe.
