January 22, 2010 Keanan is on his way to the U.S. tonight. Thank you to all who offered their support. We send you our best wishes for a smooth transition for all of you.
A fellow adoptive parent who I met through writing circles was in Haiti visiting her adoptive son to be (two and a half years in the process) when the earth quake struck. Her story, and what we can do to help bring him home now, and not in three more years.
Excerpt from her blog: I am home from Haiti, safe and relieved. So many stories to tell, but right now we are mobilizing our energy towards trying to get our son home, too. It was extremely difficult to leave him in Haiti under the current situation. We are hearing rumors that there may be an option for getting him home under humanitarian parole. I know a lot of you are reading this blog and offering help. THIS IS HOW YOU CAN HELP. If this smacks of desperation, it’s because we are desperate. We want to get him home. Watching the news since I’ve been home has made me even more aware of how bad things are over there. I am grateful to be home, but very upset to have left our son there. http://ow.ly/1n8GU0
