It's finally here! We all made it safely to Santo Domingo today
and are all geared up and ready to start our first clinic tomorrow.
We arrived in a few separate groups and all met up tonight at dinner
with our friends from Esperanza. It was a great night for everyone
to meet and learn more about what we will be doing. I can tell this
group will be fabulous and everyone is so ready to get started.
