Ernest and Ronel along with others waiting to get out of Haiti are still stuck in the U.S. Embassy. Earlier today they were told my officials in the U.S. embassy it they got a flight they could leave the country. Well, Ernest got a flight and it seems that the officials in the U.S. embassy had no intention of letting them leave Haiti. The staff is being difficult and causing unnecessarily causing delays.
It is understandable that following the recent disaster in Haiti that caution would be exercised when dealing with international adoptions. However, the Parker’s adoption of Ronel is not a new adoption and was is the final stages prior to the earthquake.
Ok, once again it is time to tweet, Facebook and email officials to get help for Ronel and his family. Last time tweeting got the attention of Congressman Poe. Now it is time to send a message to the U.S. Embassy.
SOME TALKING POINTS: Be specific about the Parkers, the adoption is already finalized but red tape is delaying their release, sleeping on the floor in PAP at the US embassy, please do all you can to help, etc..
