I just read an article regarding 10 U.S. Baptist's who went over to Haiti & tried to bus out over 30 children to safety. Well, they got stopped & they had no papers for these children.

As I'm reading, I don't know who to believe. It sounds fishy to me. Were these people really trying to help or were they doing something a little more illegal and trying to pass it off as being Good Samaritans?

Here's a link to the article. Take a read and leave your comment.

I don't believe there are as innocent as they are pretending to be. There is a large number of people willing to pay large amounts of money to adopt children. I think someone should really look into what these people were doing.

Yeah...it is kinda hard to say, but it seems like they just didn't have the proper paperwork and/or understand that they were going about it the wrong way? I would hope they were just really trying to do the right thing.

From some things I have seen in the past, I would not count on it.

Good or bad intentions.No one has the right to remove children without the appropriate authorities permission. In my opinion.

Have a greenie for such a thought provoking blog.

I just heard on the news that the social services agency in Haiti is saying these people are part of an illegal adoption ring and want them brought up on charges. So tomorrow they have to go to court.

There isn't any way of knowing from the article who is in the right or wrong. However, with children's lives in the balance it's better to be safe. However, I don't believe the new procedure (see below) will guarantee aynthing of consequence for the good of the children.

The government now requires Prime Minister Max Bellerive to personally authorize the departure of any child as a way to prevent child trafficking.
This quote from the article is disturbing... this man is not known to be reputable, which is representative of the majority of the Haitian government. This decision will also slow down adoptions even more and has the potential of graft written all over it. How is he supposed to know more than anyone else about whether the conditions of adoption have been met... he can't and won't be able to research every adoption and must rely on his cronies to assist. This precaution is a smoke screen and my heart breaks for all of the Haitian children who need medical attention and the stability of a good home.

Sounds like a recruitment setup for Penguin Hookers!

Given the age of the children they transported, some as old as 12, it does not seem like trafficking since couples adopting typically want infants and small children.

I agree the situaiton is terribly sad in Haiti but these people were incredibly naive to think they could simply walk away with 33 children and not be held accountable.

Sounds fishy... really fishy. If they were sincere in their mission they would have gotten paperwork on the children.

I note they did not post the website they had where they were taking donations...nor has it said the "famous minister" has verified their story. A lot has been left out of this. But at first feel for me...looks like yet another group of crusaders out to change and save the world just charged on blindly forward and since they were CHRISTIANS, obviously they had no need to know ANY of the rules and regulations required to do such a thing. *Rolleyes*

I didn't get the impression that they intended to do anything particularly wrong. It seems like they legitimately thought they were doing the right thing. However, it seems to be a case of good intentions, not thinking things through, and criminal negligence.

In reading the article, I found myself wondering if anybody in their group even spoke Creole or bothered to contact agencies like the International Red Cross, the Haitian Gov't, or the American aid effort.

I can't find the website for this group. Central Valley Baptist Church's website didn't seem to have relevant links. If their website is up somewhere, it's been buried under news articles about the arrest.

Regarding the "famous minister", a CTV article had the following:
Silsby said ... [the children] were obtained from a Haitian pastor named Jean Sanbil of the Sharing Jesus Ministries.

Just because someone says they are not trafficking does not mean they are telling the truth. Older children are being adopted more these days because many families cannot afford to adopt infants due to the higher cost. However, children 12 plus are prime targets for traffickers of the sexual and slave varieties.

As previously mentioned, no one knows precisely what the intentions of the Baptists were and until it's absolutely clear what their intentions were they should not have access to the children... no matter what ages they may be.
