I celebrated Mothers' Day two weeks ago when I was in Boston with my mother (how convenient). But in Haiti, Mothers' Day happens in late May, so I had the opportunity to party again. I don't really have a Haitian mother, but I do know a whole bunch of ladies who act as loving mothers to a whole bunch of sick and needy children. So for my Haitian Mothers' Day, my friend Scott and I trekked to Dorothy's house where the older kids helped me prepare a little fun for the nannies. Cha-Cha was particularly helpful, walking around with plates of watermelon to offer the nannies and spilling a few gallons of juice on the floor in the process.
We had a wonderful afternoon and I hope the ladies walked away knowing that they are deeply loved and appreciated for their mothering of the babies at Faith Hope Love Infant Rescue.
