A beautiful sight in a tragic situation...

This photo is both heartbreaking and encouraging at the same time. Despite all the turmoil around, Renante Taris breastfeeds her son, Erikson, comforting him in this gentle mothering way like nothing else can. Renante and her toddler are at a hospital in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

  1. Thanks for sharing this image of hope. They've been rare - not newsworth enough maybe.

  2. I agree, we need to see more! In spite of all the tragedy occuring in Haiti, it brings hope to see images like this.

  3. When I saw it, I just couldn't keep it for myself. So sad and beautiful at the same time. Doesn't the child look peaceful and confortable?

    And oh my, you put a link to my blog and made me realize I haven't been writing in a very long time! I think an update is way overdue.


Thanks for letting me know you stopped by!
