For many of us, Haiti is a place we visited in the process of adopting children. A place where we found that electricity isn't guaranteed, air conditioning is saved for a few hours late in the day, sodas are warm and laundry is often done by hand and hung out to dry. Traffic rules are subjective. We also found that Haiti is a country rich in tradition and culture.

Another unusual thing about living here is that we see lots of friends come and go. After so much time together, it’s hard seeing friend leave. Most teenagers our age have friends they have known for years and have gone to school with. Living in Haiti we have had the opportunity to meet a wide range of different friends. To me this a special thing about living in a different country.
