Humanitarian Parole has been granted and like I said things are still getting worked out. Meanwhile the situation in Haiti is still very dire and on one hand is becoming very unstable due to the looting and lack of organized security. These children will remain in their current situation until everything is organized for thier move. It is very important that there be a safe plan to transport and release these children. This letter was released from the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute. If you would take the time to email this into or call your State Representative TODAY it could help determine thier safety and how quickly they can safely leave Haiti.

Here is a letter you can cut and paste and insert your specific information. I have made it very easy for you. I have created a link to a site that gives you contact info to your state reps. See sidebar for link.

Hello, my name is…
My … (FRIENDS) Trevor and Lindsay Crapo or just freinds if you prefer.

I know that many Members of Congress continue to support efforts on behalf of Haiti’s orphaned children. I extend my thanks to the Congressman/Senator.
I am calling because…

* We need your help to get our adoptive child out of Haiti safely.
* Water, food and medicine are running out.
* Gangs have looted some of the orphanages and even travel is not safe for the children.
* The Department of Homeland security has granted humanitarian parole, but it is only the first step.
* The devastation from the earthquake is vast and our child’s safety - and even life - is at risk.

Joint Council on International Children’s Services, the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, and a team of congressional offices and relief organizations are working to coordinate a staging and housing center to provide:

* Physical safety
* Medicine
* Food
* Water
* A Staging Center for USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) to process humanitarian parole

The groups working to launch the staging and housing center already have most of what the children need.
But they do not have

* Water
* Security to protect the children and supplies from gangs
* Transportation to bring the children into this safe haven

We are asking that (name of Member of Congress) personally call:

* Secretary of State Clinton, and
* Dr. Shah, Administrator Designate at USAID

And specifically request that they authorize security forces be sent to the offered staging center and assist in the extraction and transport of these children from their orphanages to the staging center. All other pieces of a successful operation of this staging center are currently in place, but all hinge on this authorization of security and transport.

If this security does not reach the site within 24 hours, children being adopted and many other children will continue to suffer and may in fact not live long enough to be united with my family and the other 300 U.S. families.

If the Member of Congress needs more information, please have them contact:
