Ann Marie - We missed you...

Many of you have been asking "Where's Ann Marie?"   We haven't seen her on the blog.  
After a brief visit with some relatives she is back at St. Laurence House - doing that "Nazareth House thing" - sorting medications 
and preparing them for proper distribution.  

It seems Ann Marie has found a secret note that my granddaughter, Jenna stashed away in a package full of medicines.
  Jenna and her little brother, Kelsay were very helpful in packing the box from Louisville, Kentucky.
  Now, it has arrived in Freetown, Sierra Leone.   
As Ann Marie unpacks and sorts, 
Roo can't resist getting in the picture....
or should I say getting into the BOX!  

Oh Roo, your smiles always brighten our day! 

Thank you for those who provided the medication, 

thank you to those who packed and shipped it and thank you to Ann Marie, Roo 

and the Nazareth House (St. Laurence House) Staff 

for distributing it to those who need it.
