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/

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.
