I hoped to have a clear plan of action for you by now. I don’t. “It’s complicated….” as they say.
In short, we are pursuing humanitarian parole for the orphans of Haiti. Not visas. Not citizenship. Not even adoptive families at this point. We just want to get them out of the death trap that Haiti is becoming.
If the US government does not help us get them out, the child traffickers will make their way to Haiti and have a heyday with thousands of children, newly orphaned, who will not be missed when they disappear.
We have been tracking with the Bresma orphanage that is getting a lot of publicity. They are still not out of the woods – in fact, they’re out of water and their release is not a sure thing. The people who are working on their case are more than willing to share their info with us – they’ve been incredibly gracious to us already even though they’re in the heat of battle on their own case.
Thanks for those who have called, texted, twittered and emailed me photos of donuts. Please understand if I haven’t replied. It’s been a little crazy.
Also, if you offered to adopt – understand that we are looking at bringing these orphans here in an emergency situation. It’s not clear if they would be available for adoption soon or ever. Let’s not let that stop us from being mothers and fathers to the poor of the earth.
More info coming soon – keep watching
