Haiti Update

Here is the latest email I've received:

Dear Lindsey,
As the heartbreaking crisis continues to unfold in Haiti, I want to express my deepest gratitude for the outpouring of love, prayers and donations we have received from sponsors and friends worldwide. We are so thankful. Here is a brief update of what we know so far:
Many thousands of Compassion children have been significantly affected by the earthquake.
Many have lost family members, homes and all possessions.
Sadly, we now know for certain that some of our children have been killed or injured.
Our Haiti staff members are working tirelessly to locate Compassion children and determine each child's personal situation and needs.About 75 of Compassion's Dominican Republic staff have joined the relief effort and are now bringing food, water and medical supplies across the border into Haiti.We know you care deeply about Love Woodshaina K Joseph. Be assured that we share that same love and concern, and we are committed to providing you with specific information as soon as it becomes available. This will be a long road, and we will be there every step of the way, providing Compassion children with everything from the most basic and immediate care to longer-term recovery, such as rebuilding homes. We are so thankful for the faithful support of sponsors and friends like you. May God bless you!

I'm very ready to hear about Love and her family, but it breaks my heart to know that regardless of how she is doing, other children have been killed and some orphaned.
I do believe that God is at work.
