I was out of cell range all day. When my Blackberry came back to life, I was inundated with requests for news about the orphanage.

They are still stuck in Haiti. They never went to the Embassy. Adoptive parents Elizabeth and Josh Daby tell Fox correspondent Laura Ingle the embassy told them not to come unless all the kids have their pictures taken. So the orphanage spent the day taking photos. Word is they will try to get to the Embassy again in the morning. I will be working at the airport, and hopefully will see the kids loaded on to an airplane soon.

15 children at the House of God's Children (Maison des Enfants de Dieu) who are not yet adopted. If you are interested in adopting or fostering, please visit www.forhisgloryoutreach.org.  Here is the latest press release from For His Glory Outreach:



Press Release - January 20, 2010

 Orphans Intend to Depart Port-au-Prince...
Again


Confusing and
complicated orphan process delays orphan's departure


(Port-au-Prince, Haiti)  On
January 20, 2010, staff from the Maison des Enfants de Dieu (Children of the House of God) orphanage accompanied by representatives from the U.S. ministry, For His Glory Adoption Outreach (FHG), attempted to obtain humanitarian parole from the U.S. Embassy Port-au-Prince for 133
orphans.  The orphanage staff and FHG representatives were turned away because of confusion about photo requirements for each child.  Additionally, they were informed that humanitarian parole would only apply to approximately 111 of the 132 children from the Maison des Enfants de Dieu orphanage.  These are the orphans who have a "United States qualified referral" dated prior to the earthquake on January 12, 2010.

In accordance with specific instructions received today, orphanage staff and FHG representatives will depart for U.S. Embassy Port-au-Prince in the early morning of January 21, 2010, with the 109 children eligible for humanitarian parole.  We anticipate they will receive authority to depart Haiti via air by the early afternoon and will provide further information on the actual schedule as soon as we have it.  Three of the remaining 24 children are being adopted by parents in Argentina and Canada and are waiting for those countries to announce their evacuation procedures.  The remaining 18 children at Maison des Enfants de Dieu orphanage will remain in Haiti since they have not yet been referred for international adoption.  The orphanage receives request each day to accept new orphans, however their ability to accept children orphaned since the earthquake is very limited. Orphanage staff today reported they were out of diapers, low on food and they remained concerned about security at the orphanage. 


Kim Harmon, President of FHG, underscored her call "to all who
care about these precious children to pray earnestly for their safety
and that the complicated humanitarian parole process can be successfully
completed tomorrow. We are thankful to the Lord for where He has
brought us and for everyone's tireless prayer and work to accomplish His
will in bringing these children home soon. We pray that the wait will
not be much longer and continue to work to that end."



FHG is a ministry to the people and children of Haiti. Our ministry is dedicated to
fundraising and assisting the orphanage, Maison des Enfants de Dieu, in
Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
