4A Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Quake stalls volunteer's return trip to Haiti orphanage last fall, Green- wood lived and worked on site seven days a week. Her days, and often nights, were filled with not only the gig- gles, but also the cries of a dozen babies in the nursery dependent on her and one other aide to meet their every need. Thoug h she did agree her role in Haiti was a lot of, work, her eyes shine behind her glasses, and convey her eagerness to return for an- other mission. When asked if being around all those babies made her want to have her own baby, she i'eplied with- out hesitation, "It makes me want to adopt children. I would love to keep going back again and again. We'll see what God's will for me is." Haiti Children's Home The orphanage is a min- istry of Patricia Smith and her daughter Melinda. After working for a missionary in 1983, Pat said she returned to the states with a burden on her heart. In 1984, she and her daughte r moved to Haiti and'a baby arrived on their doorstep shortly there- after. Since HCH opened its doors in 1986, at least 200 children have passed through their care. Melinda is medically trained as a nurse. She and Pat, along with volunteers and a small paid staff, care for malnour- ished, premature and aban- doned children.

The ::. horrific tales are a heart- wrenching reality affecting 44 little boys and girls she lived with for four months and knows by name. Greenwood and her broth- er, James, were at the Sacra- mento airport, Haiti-bound, when the call came with the shocking news of the quake. With their trip now on hold, the brother sister team have turned their efforts to fundraising, the only way they can help until they can return in person to the Haiti : Children's Home in Mirebal- ais. ! "They are like a big fami- ly," Greenwood said when she spoke about the orphan- age. "They have been loved there their whole lives. Grandma Pat is the only grandma they've ever known." As a volunteer at the many of the children. HCH relies on volunteers like Greenwood and dona- tions to continue its work. The website says it is "near- ly impossible to compre- hend all of the challenges Pat and Melinda face every- day."
