Urgent Action needed to bring Kembert home

UPDATE: KEMBERT IS HOME!!!! THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT…You can read more about his story here
_________________________________
Since the earthquake, thousands of children currently living in orphanages in Haiti no longer have a roof over their heads, food to eat or clean water to drink. Many of these children are being adopted by Americans who are simply waiting for administrative paperwork to be processed in Haiti.

Contact your member of Congress and senators and tell them you want humanitarian paroles for children in Haiti being adopted by Americans so that they can come to the United States.

Our friends, Mark and Kristen Howerton, are asking for your help in spreading the word…with the hope of bringing their son Kembert home from Haiti!!!  You can follow the Howerton’s story here and watch them tell their story today  (1/17/10) on CNN @ 3:00pm PST
TAKE ACTION IN 3 EASY STEPS:
1. Spread the word…Share this via Facebook, Twitter, email  or ANY OTHER CREATIVE WAY YOU CAN THINK OF
2. Learn about helping rebuild Heartline Ministries Orphanage where Keembert is currently living here
3. Send the following letter to members of Congress and the Clinton Foundation using the links below:

Here is the letter to send…

I/We are friends of Mark and Kristen Howerton, who are in the process of adopting Kembert Estime, DOB 10-7-06 who was living at the Heartline Ministries/Maranatha Orphanage prior to the devastating earthquake in Haiti.

I/We are aware that USCIS has the authority to issue a humanitarian parole for Kembert Estime to travel to the United States to live with Mark and Kristen Howerton pending final adoption processing in Haiti. While granting a humanitarian parole is outside the normal procedures, the United States government has granted them in the past (e.g. Cambodia and Romania).

While I/we realize that the United States seeks to honor the adoption process established in Haiti, I/we feel that Kembert Estime and the country of Haiti would be best served by Keembert Estime being placed with Mark and Kristen Howerton, his future mom/dad. I/We feel that Haitian authorities would agree to this if it was proposed. What better way for the United States to help Haiti than to care for Haiti’s child that is already so loved by this family.
