The earthquake that hit Haiti 6 days ago left behind it a path of destruction. According to official estimates, there are 330,000 Orphans in Haiti right now. Some of these kids are in the process of being adopted by parents from the United States and other countries.
Many of these orphanages are in dire need of food and water. Some of these babies are dying from dehydration as I’m writing these lines. The situation is desperate. These kids are dying while their adoptive parents are doing all they can to rescue them.
After several days of pleas, the US has finally granted Humanitarian Parole to some of these kids, but to my knowledge, only seven of them have made it out of Haiti so far. Soledad O’Brien has been sending out distress Tweets all day today. She is at orphanages with babies who are dying, many of whom are in the process of being adopted by American parents, but so far the airlift seems like a fantasy.
We need to get these kids out as soon as possible. We also need to get the rest of the orphans out before they perish. Please help!
With tears in my eyes, but hope in my heart, I humbly ask for your assistance. Please spread the word and contact your US Representatives about this crisis! Every hour counts…
