Here is a portion of a message that I received on yesterday from MN.
"We write to reassure you that we have made contact with our staff at Maison de Naissance in Larnage, which is approximately 100 miles west of Port au Prince. Our staff and facility are safe!
To our current knowledge, the effects of the earthquake were minor in our area of service compared to the damage sustained in Port au Prince. There was shaking and creaking, but we are not aware of life threatening injuries or severe damage.
While we are grateful that our birthing home and staff are safe at this time, please remember that our staff has many family members and friends - and we have many friends - in the affected area. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers."
My prayers go out to all my family and friends.
