Sherri – Blog 2 – A Haitian welcome

My first day in the project and I know already that I am going to love it here!  On arriving at the ITFC (inpatient therapeutic feeding centre) I took a moment to speak with all the staff and mothers present, explaining to them who I was, why I had come and also about the blog I would be writing and why it was important.  I finished by saying that over the next 3 months I hoped that they would welcome me as a member of their families here in Haiti.  The most incredible thing happened; one after another the mothers and staff kissed my cheeks and wrapped me into these big hugs, the kind you almost never get from strangers back home.  I feel as though they have already given me their love and respect and now it is mine to protect, and hopefully grow.
