Lindsay and Trevor have recieved some VERY hopeful news regarding bringing thier children home. This is a message that she has sent out to friends and family and she gave me permission to share it with you.

We are the Crapo Family:
Trevor, Lindsay, Gabrielle, Gavin and Gage...this is only half of our family......Five children, that we have been trying to adopt for the last three and half years, Madalyn, Sophie,Gracie, Sawyer and Kenyon ...are right now in the mist of the Haiti earthquake in an Orphanage.
They are rationing what water have.

We have traveled to Haiti 12 with them in a hotel for 7 to 15 days at a time...we are thier Mama and Papa....the people they are expecting to come and rescue them....

We do not have the word ....YET. We feel so confident that it will happen soon. We have very close connections with the Department of State and Joint Council and we believe the kids WILL be able to come to the US. It is not a matter of if...but when.

We are doing our best not to go crazy with worry....Heavenly Father has preserved their lives, now we have to leave them in his arms for just a little longer.

If and when this is going to happen it's going to Happen FAST!

Being as self reliant as we have always tried to be...this is difficult.
There is no way for us to come up with the thousands of dollars it is going to take to get the kids here on our own, in the VERY short amount of time that we have been given....we had begun plans for a fundraiser over the next couple of months
to get the kids home. Now there is simply NOT enough time.

We are unsure of the exact number ...but we need to purchase plane tickets possibly from Port-au-Prince to Miami and then HOME to Idaho.
Pending on the medical status the children are in ...we may need to seek emergency care as soon as they are in the U.S.

When this does happen which we are VERY confident it will, it will happen quickly, we may have days or even hours notice.

It humbles us to ask for help....
We have anxiety doing so when so many people lie underneath the rubble in our childrens home country....but these are our five children in Haiti that have been effected by this catastrophic tragedy ....
Five Children that we can Save.....

You can also keep tabs on the Joint Council website they quickly rush to come to agreement with the Department of State their effort to get the children of American adoptive couples out of Haiti as soon as possible.

Thank you so much,
Lindsay Crapo
