Adopting Haitian Orphans

I received this email and thought it worth passing along:

Adopting Orphaned Haitian Children

AdoptUsKids has received a number of inquiries from families that are interested in adopting Haitian Earthquake Orphans. At this time, the first priority of government and disaster recovery officials is to address the immediate medical and physical needs of the people affected by the earthquake and assist in the reunion of family members who have been displaced or separated by the disaster. Therefore, it may take a long time before children affected by the disaster may be available for adoption. The U.S. Department of State provides information on the adoption of children affected by natural disasters and conflict on their website at:

You also can locate contact information for adoption agencies that place children from Haiti through our resource list of U.S. Adoption Agencies That Place Children From Abroad at:

I saw on CNN last night that the BRESMA O directors (sisters) had 12 kids that had not been adopted so they brought them to PA and will set up a foster home until they can be adopted (or finish their adoptions - they didn't clarify exactly where they were in-process). I'm like Sarah, I hope the govt goes thru the process correctly. My agency CEO is heading to Washington this week to meet with govt folks to see what help can be provided...foster homes for families, etc.
ps, hope you feel better soon!!!!
