For all those families who have seen the incredibly difficult pictures and footage of children in Haiti and who are inquiring about adopting these Haitian children, please consult guidance being disseminated by the US Department of State. (link below).  It is very important that families wishing to adopt Haitian children understand that while there is a genuine crisis for many of these children,  it is imperative that legal systems of checks and balances are in place to ensure that chidlren are indeed orphans and that there are no relatives or others in Haiti who can care for these children.  This means that the process of determining whether these children are available for adoption will take much time and most probably months.  Children Affected by the earthquake in Haiti
