Haiti, family reunification, and reality….

Just saw a cnn piece about a four year old waiting to be reunited with his family–waiting and waiting. The number of those successfully reunited with families after the quake is distressingly small, relative to the enormous Haitian child welfare problem. The bbc piece, link below, is on those who have (even before the quake) been working with the many Haitian “phantom” children–those for whom there is nothing, and no one.

Read it and weep.
