I stayed in Haiti for Christmas. Part of me wanted to come home and visit, but the other part of me wanted to stay and experience what Christmas was like here.
On Thursday, we had a school Christmas play and party for the kids and their parents. Though some are truly orphans, many have at least one living parent. Teri, the school's principal, and I weren't quite sure how many parents would show up but we were pleasantly surprised when we went into the church and saw that it was full. In true Haitian style, we started late but it was worth it. The classes sang several songs and put on several skits.
