One of the most meaningful moments of our April trip for me was on Sunday morning after mass. I had the joy of meeting Chounelleca's mother and was moved to tears as she told me the story of her daughters death. She has 5 children and has lost 2 of them. It is a reminder to me that mother's in Haiti face the loss of their children regularly and I cannot imagine the pain they must go through when losing not one but two children. I am inspired by her level of faith and how it gets her through such a tragedy. Although there is no gift we could give to erase her pain, I am happy we were able to help them with the financial burden of a proper burial and providing financial support for her other children's education.
