Watching and reading all the information on the people who were trying to take children out of the country of Haiti to give them a better life has really hit a sore spot with me. First of all how many of us would like it people from another country came and took our children (who they assume do not have parents) without permission or the proper legal documents to another country. Just because a child is an orphan does not give someone the right to take them from their country without going through the proper channels sure they are trying to do right by these children but by doing right we follow the guidelines and laws set forth by the government in their country whether we believe in that government or not. Every living person should have the right to a good life but what are we teaching others by breaking the law. Let's face it all these children and adults in Haiti need help and they need right now and with all the politics going on in Haiti let's not ruin the chance to provide the support they need by not abiding by the laws of their country.
