I don't know if you've been following the travesty in Haiti much, but it is heartbreaking. I can't talk about it much because I can not do it without tears.

Ginny aka PittGirl over at passed along a story a month or so ago about 2 Pittsburgh girls who live in Haiti and run BRESMA orphanage on Port-au-Prince.

They. have. been. devastated.

They have 150 children they are in charge. At the moment, they are living on the lawn of the orphanage. No water. No food. No shelter. The embassy has offered to fly the Ali and Jamie home to Pittsburgh. THey said no.

THEY SAID NO because they are amazing.

They will not leave until their children are taken care of. Most of these children, if not ALL of these children, are so close to be adopted. They have adoptions in process, but they aren't finalized. They are ALMOST American citizens but they aren't. So they can't leave on an American Embassy flight.

Here's what needs to happen. Ginny launched a massive campaign to get the girls and the children home to America and SAFE. There's offers of planes to get them and bring them home. That's fine.

We need to pray specifically for the following:
1) That the politicians already working round the clock to get the children granted asylum would be successful and FAST.
2) That food, water and diapers would be taken to the girls and NOW. IMMEDIATELY. NOW.
3) That the children and the girls would be safe until help gets to them.

I believe 100% in the power of prayer. I can't do much, but I can repost this. I can promise to pray and beg you to join in prayer with me. Look at the pictures of Ginny's blog and you will be heart broken for them as well. They are BABIES there. BABIES. Like Rory. Starving and thirsty. Rory is sleeping soundly in her crib with plenty of formula and lots of jars of baby food patiently waiting for her in the cupboards. THOSE BABIES are sleeping on the lawn and waiting for their next meal.
