Together we shared something special that we’ll carry forever. Beyond the bug spray, anti-emetics and ointments, we had enough realizations and laughs to last a lifetime.

I could never put a price on what the people of Haiti gave to me, in a place where they were more likely to be wearing a smile than a pair of shoes. This trip, coming to a close around Thanksgiving, has been a powerful reminder to be thankful for everything I’ve got and to keep giving, even when it might not feel like a lot. So as I settle back on the island I know and love, I want to say thanks to our teammates with Haiti Village Health for the opportunity to work with them and the people of Northern Haiti.
