Alec & Ian in Haiti
I felt I needed to post about this because I couldn't believe what I was reading when my friend Terri posted this on her blog! UNICEF is not allowing the orpan children in Haiti to go the orphanages and hospitals to take care of them but keeping them in tent camps! This is outrageous to keep children from proper care just for their own self-interest. Terri's sister Stephanie has been in adoption proceedings for awhile now for her boys from Haiti and has written posts about what is happening. It makes my heart really sad and I hope that someone can do something about this tragedy. Putting the news out is one way to promote a change!
** At the end of this article there are two emails for people who work at UNICEF. I just emailed them about my concern for this issue.
**UPDATE: Christopher de Bono responded via email this morning: "Thanks for your email. What you are hearing is absolute nonsense." He should tell that to the people waiting for their adoptive children and who know what's going on.
