About the Author:

Sue Walsh currently enjoys her work as a primary care pediatric nurse practitioner and as a clinical instructor of graduate nursing students at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Combining her expertise in infant, child, and adolescent health care with her passion for serving vulnerable populations, she and her husband, Brian, have been leading medical mission teams to Haiti since February 2006. Sue and Brian have been married for more than 30 years, have raised 3 children (Brad, Maggie, and Kyle), and have more than 30 nieces and nephews. The love of family and friends is Sue s greatest blessing, but the ability to be God s hands and feet is Sue s deepest joy. In May 2003, the horrible tragedy of a motor vehicle accident took the life of Sue s oldest son, Brad. After a short leave of absence Sue returned to work. A few months later that same year a car made an illegal turn and struck her as she was crossing a busy intersection walking to her car. She now reflects back on that time as a gift of stillness and rest, as she was forced to breakaway from her empty daily routine and recoup for several months. That quiet period was faith building and deeply healing of both her broken body and broken heart. She continues to see great joy in this world. Sue realizes that we all endure varied forms of tragedy and loss throughout our lives. She knows that our response to such events is very personal and that the collective experience of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti did and will continue to elicit both profound and subtle emotions and actions in many. It is in keeping with these thoughts that Sue hopes to engage her readers into their own reflections of tragedy, loss, faith and action. Little by Little is a nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization, supported by many across the country, that was established by Susan Walsh and the dedication of many volunteers to faithfully partner with those in need of improved health and well-being, specifically in Haiti. Together with a very committed group of individuals, Little by Little continues to pursue its mission, recognizing that the sustainability of this work is paramount to the vulnerable population they serve in Haiti. Thank you for purchasing this book. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Walking in Broken Shoes will help to support the Walshes continued medical mission work in Haiti.

Review:

In Walking in Broken Shoes, author Susan Walsh has provided a poignant view of the Haiti most of us do not know. Through her experiences as a nurse practitioner in a medical mission, we see Haitians valiantly struggling for the most basic of needs--food, water, shelter, health--while retaining hope and a positive attitude. Once you have shared Susan's experiences following the disastrous earthquake of 2010, you will never see Haiti the same way again. The stories in this book will stay with you long after you have replaced it on your bookshelf. My only problem in reading about the many visits of this dedicated medical team to Haiti was the necessity to keep wiping away my tears. --Mary Carole McMann, MPH Editor of NP World News

As the nation s top medical schools incorporate global health programs into their curricula, pediatric nurse practitioner and clinical instructor Susan Walsh similarly integrates her passions for healthcare, teaching and service. Leading teams to a mountaintop clinic in Haiti with medical competence and cultural humility, Susan ultimately teaches us all that the most essential element in promoting global health is the human connection. Walking in Broken Shoes is an unforgettable read for healthcare professionals interested in providing meaningful and sustainable care in resource-poor settings. --Leslie Cordes, MD, FAAP Northwestern University/Feinberg School of Medicine

Insightful quotes, proverbs, and bible verses accompany Sue Walsh's personal account of living and helping through the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Her personal journey - overcoming her son's tragic death and her injuries from an auto crash, to take on new challenges at work and as service to the neediest children, and leading multiple volunteer medical mission trips - is as inspiring as the unconquerable Haitian spirit she describes. --Susan B. Noyes, Founder of Make It Better
