I talked to Lindsay a couple hours ago. They headed down to the Embassy this morning ready to sign the paperwork and then begin the process of physically moving the kids out of Haiti. They have a flight that is ready to go on Thursday to take ALL of them to SLC. They waited in line for quite awhile and when it was their turn no one really came to help them. Finally someone came to them and told them to go back to the Orphanage because the Haitian govenment has put a freeze on the Humanitarian Parole and they couldn't help them. REALLY! After all of this!?!
Hillary Clinton had a meeting with the Haitian government this afternoon regarding the adoption freeze. We are praying that she is able to get something done so that we can move forward! Lindsay says she plans to go back to the Embassy tomorrow morning and try again hoping that something has changed.
I know I sound like a broken record but I don't know what else to do but ask everyone to pray that those babies will be able to come home! Trevor and Lindsay have spent 3 years VALIANTLY fighting for these children! Hitting road block after road block. I don't know of anything that they haven't done to try to make this happen. PRAYERS!
I asked Lindsay what they were planning on doing this afternoon. She said that they were all headed over to the church to help the people who are living under so called "tents" at the church. Lindsay said that many of them have nothing more than a sheet tented for their shelter.
On a positive note I was able to talk to Madalyn this afternoon. She is speaking english so well! She said "I love you Kelli." My heart just jumped with joy to finally be able to talk to her! I told her that I loved her too and that I couldn't wait to see her! Lindsay says that Madalyn is really worried that she will not be able to come home but is otherwise doing well.
Please feel free to share this with everyone you know. We need all the prayers that we can get. I hope to have better news tomorrow.
