Two things: TubaDad just sent this link over and I thought it was worth sharing. It's a CNN story titled Haitian orphans rushed to new homes abroad, and tells what the US and Netherlands are doing to expedite in-progress adoptions in Haiti. It's one thing. The other thing involves donations. If you can donate to Haiti earthquake relief efforts, but don't know where to begin, here are two places to start: 1. Official suggestions: CNN is airing a special two-hour edition of Larry King Live tonight (5pm Pacific time, 8pm Eastern time) that will talk about immediate things you can do to aid earthquake victims. 2. A personal suggestion: Braydon and Heather, at the blog Party of Five, have done a lot of research on this (they are dang smart people who I trust and who adopted exuberant twin boys from Haiti five years ago), and they recommend donating to Heartline Ministries where they say "we know for sure that your money will go fully and wholly straight where it is needed." Click here to donate to Heartline's Haiti earthquake relief efforts. Anyhow, I'm just posting this in case anyone wants to help earthquake victims but is unsure of what to do. I know that TubaDad and I get kind of paralyzed when this type of tragedy strikes. We want to help, and we can, but sometimes we don't even know where to start.
