Tuesday: Some Biancos and Neros are going to volunteer in Haiti.
“Odette I’m going to miss you so much. But I think that what you’re doing is right, and I’m sure Drew will appreciate you a lot”
“Merci Linette” Odette comes over to my side, I’m sitting on her bed watching her pack some useful things for her 4 day trip to Haiti to volunteer. She hugs me and kisses me on the cheek.
“I will be back Friday. This is a very important step for me, please make sure that Mom and Dad don’t freak out okay?”
We both had tears in our eyes.
