Orphans of Haiti.....

Orphans of Haiti.....
Is your heart as broken as mine is? I have been crying every night at 6:00, 7:00, and if I am still awake 11:00. The news just tears me up. Last night the local news featured a couple from our hometown that are desperately trying to get their son home. You can read the story here. You mention the word Haiti and I break out into tears. Those little children that were already orphans and now sleeping on the streets with no food or water. Thousands of new children were made orphans in an instant.
We can all support agencies and business that are helping Haiti. Not just big guys like the Red Cross but local businesses like, you know, the company that sells ADOPTION scrapbooking gear and beautiful Russian designs? They are matching every $10 donated.
Here is another way to help, a big huge way that needs to bathed in prayer, but needs to be considered, QUICKLY! Kids in Distress are creating a database to match Haitian Orphans with potential adoptive parents. E-Mail Tiffani if you need more information or would like to go ahead and be added to the database in case a loophole opens that would allow families to temporarily foster/adopt these precious children.

At this point, we are collecting information from every interested party
and submitting that information to the State of Florida. If you are
interested in being included in this database, please let me know:...
City/State/County you reside in
Creole speaking? French?
Do you need financial assistance?
Stay at home mother?
Foster Parent? If so, with what agency?
I look forward to hearing from you and THANK YOU for your dedication to
Kids in Distress!!!
