    NEW UPDATE: At 9am this morning, January 15,  we received a call from Yanica's brother Stefan (who is also in Haiti).  He told us that Jessica and Yanica are safe and at the US Embassy.  "They will be flying out today".  We have no details on where they will be going from Haiti.  Stefan (a US citizen) is going to stay in Haiti to help family there.


    UPDATE:  At 9pm on January 13th we received word from Stefan, Yanica's brother, that Jessica and Yanica are safe and okay.  Stefan's girlfriend in New York finally reached Stefan's cell phone in Haiti and, although we have no details, he told her the house is okay and that they were all safe.  Apparently that area of the city sustained little damange.  Now we wait for more information about bringing them home.


    Our hearts go out to all others who are waiting and to the people of Haiti who are suffering such great loss.

    Please help!  My niece Jessica Frick and her friend Yanica Faustin are staying at 359 Bourdon Street in Port-au-Prince in Haiti.  We have not been able to reach them by phone or email to try and make sure they are okay.  If anyone is in the area and can check on their whereabout and safety we would really appreciate it.


    They are both seniors at Colby College in Waterville Maine and are staying with Yanica's family in Haiti for the month of January.


    We are very worried and hoping to get some news on their safety.


    Many thanks!


    Bobbi Kyle
