Help for Haiti

Friends of mine have been going through the process of adopting 2 children from Haiti for the past couple of years.  As many people are aware adoption processes can take a long time.  During this time they have been down to visit their children several times, but have not been able to bring them home yet.  The orphanage where they are staying did get damaged in the earthquake.  So far it sounds like the children are ok, but a couple of workers at the orphanage were hurt.  (The director and a nanny).  We don't know the extent of their specific injuries, but please remember these children in your prayers and, if possible, send a donation to a solid charity that is working in Haiti.

Some suggestions:
Doctor's Without Borders
The Red Cross
World Relief
or if you would like send a donation directly to the orphanage where my friend's children are

Please remember to pray for my friends who have already been struggling with not being able to bring their children home from an already devastated country.  I cannot imagine how it must feel to know that your children are stuck in the middle of all of this.

The children and families of this country are already struggling so much and now this earthquake has taken so much more away.  If you can send nothing else, send your love and prayers to people who are in great need.

Thank you.
