All day long a rumor has circulated about Haitian orphans bound for Indiana. Tonight, the state confirms what I suspected. Thanks to @dancruver for twittering me the link.
War’s not over folks.
“Rumors are circulating today that orphaned children from Haiti are headed to Indiana. These rumors are not true.
As the terrible news from Haiti became known, Governor Daniels directed the Department of Child Services to learn more about how the state might assist. Meanwhile, indications of interest have come from good-hearted Hoosiers offering to help.
It is far from clear that any more children will be permitted to leave Haiti. Approval from both the United States and Haiti governments would be necessary.
When there is additional information to share, we will provide it. For today, we want to address the growing rumor: There are no Haitian children headed to Indiana nor are any arrivals imminent.”
