I didn't remember if the building that we helped with had the proper steel reinforcements, but I hoped that it did, so that it could be a refuge. I prayed and prayed, as many of you must have as well.
My strongest memory from my trip was an orphanage. It had disabled children downstairs and orphan babies upstairs. Everyone cooed over the babies, but my heart broke for the disabled, for "Mon Ami," my friend who was banging his head against the wall when we arrived, but then silently lead me by hand all around the orphanage. He had not been adopted, and probably would not be.
