French families arrive in Paris with adopted Haitians
Over 100 French parents arrived in Paris Wednesday with their newly adopted Haitian sons and daughters. The parents were forced to wait over a year to bring the children home after delays caused by January’s devastating earthquake.
AFP - A French government-chartered plane carrying 113 Haitian orphans and their adoptive French families arrived in Paris from Port-au-Prince on Wednesday, an AFP correspondent reported.
The children were all in the process of being adopted when a massive quake struck on January 12, killing over 250,000 people and causing adoptions to be delayed with some records lost in the rubble.
