Several of you have asked me if our local sweethearts Jamie and Ali McMutrie are okay in Haiti, where they live in and run several orphanages in Port-au-Prince, the location of a powerful earthquake that injured countless and killed thousands of people yesterday.
I’m happy to tell you that according to their friend and my friend, Jonathan Wander, Jamie, Ali, and all of their children are alive and well and coping.
Jamie and Ali have been in contact with their parents, with Jamie’s husband who lives here in Pittsburgh, and with Jonathan.
Haiti is in chaos right now, and Jamie and Ali have many difficult days ahead, so please keep them and their many children in your thoughts and prayers.
You can follow Jonathan on twitter if you are looking for updates as things move along for them. I’ll also update as developments happen.
These two young ladies are two of the strongest people I have ever met in my life, so they’ve got that going for them as they help their children through this.
