    OMG! I posted a complaint to AC a few days ago about my concerns that the children can be easily smuggled out of the country on boats. My heart is wrenching as Anderson Cooper reports; all over the situation in recent days. This is the most horrifying thing that could happen over there. My hopes and prayers are with them all.

    Hi Anderson,

    Great job with the fundraising. I could afford to do only the phone texting thing. But it is good karma for everyone in the world to give.

    With adoption processes, I think that there needs to be a speed put to pending situations for those who already bonded with the child.

    For the rest, I think it is really important to make sure that the children have absolutely no living Hatian family relatives and are all alone. Because at this point it is really chaos, administratively.

    But I do think that adoption is the best answer!

    To whom it may concern

    The following are my suggestion in order to resolve the ways to identify children and prevent them from being a prey to people who are not related to them please contact.
    • The national center for missing and exploited Children (NCMEC) at 1-800- the- lost
    • These people equipped to process a Kid care ID
    • In this circumstances a reputable photographer is needed to take a picture of each child for kid care ID book
    • Fingerprints or footprints will be made by the (NCMRC)
    • And some DNA simple should be collected of the child to identify true relative of that child.

    These children cannot be victimized a second time; they have so much to deal with. Let us thank the doctor for being so vigilant and CNN for reporting this. Haiti needs you all thanks a million.

    Please feel free to forward to anyone who can positively intervene.

    Great report Cooper!!

    I am glad that there are people in Haiti who are actually looking out for these orphaned children. I was worried that some not so nice people would take advantage of this disaster and hurt these kids. Thank God someone is there to prevent that. I hope they get some major help from the U.S. and others to keep them safe.

    Good Morning to Anderson Cooper and CNN.

    I just hope there are organizations keeping these beautiful Haitian children safe, warm and protected. There are way too many predators out in the world. They are looking for opportunities such as this devastated country to steal children ftheir own greed. Children are precious and need to know they are loved, protected and safe. Let's all do what we can to give them that much.

    Incredibly frightening...children stolen will be another wave of disaster in Haiti if nothing is done to protect them.
