Brooke in Haiti

Brooke & Katie, Camp Goodtimes West, June 2007
One of the nurses who took care of Katie in the hospital, and who was later on staff when David and Katie went to Camp Goodtimes West, is Brooke. Brooke has moved to Haiti to help the people to whom she has given her heart. She has a blog, which she calls "Babbling Brooke;" she updates it when she can, between working in an orphanage/school/hospital. I encourage you to check it out, particularly this recent posting. Her love, her passion, her committment, her spirituality - all come shining through her words and photographs.

We were so very blessed to have Brooke caring for Katie. God bless her, and the people of Haiti who she loves so much.

What an amazing person. I have a type envy for those who can so freely give of themselves and choose to do so.

Brooke was one of Gloria's nurses, too. Such a kind and caring woman. So genuine in her love for others.
