Last week, we told you about Mom to 14, whose 4-year-old son was trapped in Haiti. Now her husband has flown over to get him ... but they still can't get out of the country. They need your help!
Last Wednesday, we brought you Sarah's story. Her son, Isaac, whom she's been trying to adopt since 2006, is in an orphanage in Haiti. He thankfully survived the quake, and Sarah's husband flew over to try to get him.
But even though he reached the orphanage, it is too dangerous to get them out.
Please pray for Isaac and the other children at his orphanage. There is a great deal of violence going on and they are unable to get the children from the orphanage and into Port-au-Prince to the embassy. We are praying that they can get a plane or something in there to pick up the children. The road conditions aren't the best, and on a good day, driving them is dangerous because of bandits and kidnapping. Right now it would be foolish for my husband to try to take Isaac on these roads on his own. We aren't able to find anyone to go with them because frankly -- it's that dangerous. Cars are being stopped because people are desperate for anything that they can get their hands on.
Please pray that somehow the government makes it possible for them to fly out of Northern Haiti! Please pray that they can process the visa in Florida once they arrive. Or please pray for some kind of help for this desperate situation that many children are stuck in. WE MUST KEEP THEM SAFE!!!!!
Today, she has issued an urgent plea:
Anyone have a family member who we can charter a flight from? We will find the money. We need a plane and a pilot and a dollar $$$ amount. Please let me know ASAP:
If you know anyone who can help, please forward this message. Help bring this boy home!
We spoke with Sarah moments ago. She says: "I feel terrible. Horrible. Frustrated and confused why no one is helping make this happen. I am really worried about the safety and well-being of my husband and son. Isaac has his little backpack on and has thought twice now that he was leaving. He is upset because he thinks that they have to stay there and won't get to come home. He has waited to leave there his whole life. Can you imagine what that would feel like to a 4-year-old? It kills me."
We hope that Isaac and Sarah's husband come home safely soon, and will keep you updated on this stressful situation. Sarah, we are pulling for you!
