To those of you with friends and family in Haiti – our prayers and thoughts are with you.  We are all saddened by the depths of this natural disaster. 

We wanted to share this information from the American Red Cross should you need.  "People trying to locate U.S. citizens living or traveling in Haiti should contact the U.S. Department of State, Office of Overseas Citizens Services, at 1-888-407-4747 or 202-647-5225.
