    Haiti crisis impacts a fellow Cyclone's adoption proceedings

    Family Awaits Word On Haitian Kids - Des Moines News Story - KCCI Des Moines

    A Cyclone, friend and a Kappa Sigma fraternity brother of mine is in the process of adopting two small children from Haiti. They've been in the process of trying to get these kids home to Iowa for the better park of two years.

    The earthquake has cast a shadow of doubt and desperation over the whole adoption process. Their orphanage has been devastated, and the adoption records are possibly misplaced amongst the destruction.

    This is a personal appeal to all of you 'Fanatics out there to help two golden hearted and die-hard Cyclones and their family in their darkest of hours. Please email/call/contact your US Congressional Delegation and ask them to expedite the visa process for the children their are trying to adopt and urge them to grant then a refugee visa for these future Cyclones. It will help get these two babies to their home, safe and sound where they belong.

    These are two of the kindest people I have ever met and you may read more about their situation here:

    Jock? The dudes name is Jock?


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Saw their story on the news last night. Hope this works out and those kids are ok and they can get them asap, but what a chaotic mess it's going to be there for awhile. It would be great if the contributions and volunteer work lasts long enough to make some meaningful longterm changes for Haiti.

    Re: Haiti crisis impacts a fellow Cyclone's adoption proceedings

    Indeed--I had the same reaction when I first met him--Jock? No really, what's your name? Jock and Lisa are good people. In the past months they have had to worry about a hurricane, and of course the earthquake, along with the normal drawn out Haiti adoption process. In additional to hopefully get their children home, by approving humanitarian or expedited visas, more space in orphanages will be open for children who have lost homes/families due to the earthquake.
