Our Efforts In Haiti
What happened in Haiti is almost beyond words. The combination of a devastating 7.1 earthquake and Haiti’s already deeply dysfunctional and incredibly challenged situation has left as many as 200,000 dead and as many as 1 million Haitians homeless. My long piece written the week after the earthquake on the subject of Haiti gives perspective on how difficult rebuilding will be http://blog.wellsmountainfoundation.org/

We think of the time that families begin preparing for the arrival of a new baby as a time of joy – filled with hopes, dreams and high expectations for the future. While many women do indeed feel this elation throughout their pregnancy, the truth is that for some women, the periods before, during and after pregnancy are anything but happy.
