There is an organized world within the tent cities that have cropped up all over Port-au-Prince since the Jan. 12 earthquake. I meet a young woman who gave birth the day of the earthquake and a boy who races a toy car he made from trash.
One week after the earthquake, a 15-day-old baby and 76-year old woman were found separately underneath collapsed buildings. I find solace in these stories and wonder about the courage it must take to survive such situations.
Since the earthquake, the mostly Haitian medical team has treated hundreds of people, operating 18 hours a day. Haiti's recovery may feel like a sprint now, but it's going to be a marathon.
Haiti and the US have cut red tape in order to facilitate adoption of the hundreds of children who are believed to be orphaned by the Jan. 12 earthquake, but some argue that rushing the process could jeopardize family reunification.
More than 15,000 vacationers have ported at the beach at Labadee since the 7.0 earthquake hit on Jan. 12. Despite reported moral outrage of some passengers, a spokesperson said no passengers have requested their money back.
Clifford Rouzeau has turned Muncheez – a popular pizza-and-ribs joint that the poor could once only dream about – into a place where thousands of those left homeless by last week's magnitude-7.0 earthquake can get a free hot meal.
Five days after the Haiti quake, a Miami-Dade County rescue team digs into a collapsed home, attempting to pull three children out.
Following the devastating earthquake, Haiti’s government has collapsed. The wealthy have been able to escape Port-au-Prince, leaving poor Haitians to build some sense of community out of refugee camps.
President René Préval holds his first press conference after the quake. It's typically low-key and unassuming.
Patrick Delatour - a long-time friend and Haiti's minister of tourism - is now head of earthquake damage assessment. Haitians will survive this, he says, but will their sense of community?
Soldiers of the 82nd Airborne Division have distributed about 150,000 bottles of water and nearly 100,000 packaged meals in Haiti so far. But much more is needed for the earthquake's survivors.
We visit two orphanages where the buildings are fine, but everyone is still sleeping outside. We put a human face, a child's face on this tragedy. But how long will the rest of the world care?
The US government has expedited orphan transfers after the earthquake in Haiti. But aid groups worry about trafficking children whose parents or other relatives still may be alive.
The forces that led to the Haiti earthquake are a reminder that the idyllic Caribbean is one of the more geologically active spots on earth, and that a powerful earthquake could strike the region again.
On Day 1 for me in Port-au-Prince after the quake, the scope of devastation steals my breath. Then, I have to tell Haitian friends in the states that their loved ones didn't survive.
The 82nd Airborne division helicoptered in to a golf course in the hills above Port-au-Prince, and is now running a camp for 50,000 displaced Haitians, struggling for food and water.

The Haiti earthquake that claimed tens of thousands of lives was largely centered around the densely populated coastal areas in the country's south. Much of the country was untouched.
The night after the 7.0 earthquake reduced Port-au-Prince to rubble, our chartered plane got the OK to land at the damaged airport. Was I going to be able to keep my emotions in check and do my job as a journalist?
It makes the perfect metaphor: the collapse of Haiti's National Palace, the crumbling of the one thing that seemed stable while the rulers inside changed places 10 times in the past 25 years.
