Because of my last post on why now is not the time to adopt from Haiti, I want to keep people apprised as I read about new developments.
First there were some rumors circulating that a large number of orphans were being airlifted to Indiana, but apparently this is not true.
The Christian Alliance for Orphans posted a blog entry answering many of the questions about new adoptions of Haiti and what kind of care orphan refugees might be placed under (i.e. foster care, etc.)
Time magazine just published on article about how the quake is speeding up Haitian adoptions that were ALREADY in progress.
Today Hope for Orphans launched their new blog with a post titled “Responding to the Haiti Crisis (Part 1 of 3): The Question of Adoption” It does a great job of delving into the point that sometimes our first emotional response in a crisis like this needs to be prayed about, researched and talked about. Especially one as serious as bringing a new child into your FOREVER family.
At the end of the article they do provide a link to Bethany Christian Services for those interested in adopting from Haiti. Please be aware though that there is absolutely no way of knowing what is going to happen with Haitian adoptions. If God is really calling you to adopt, pray and seek his wisdom about the when and where? There are thousands of children in the U.S. and abroad that are ready to adopt now. They are just as precious to Him!
