Isn't there also a two year waiting period after the child has been adopted 
and in your care, before he/she is elegible for a visa?  This would make it 
kind of sticky since the child has to be in your physical care for 2 years 
and they have to be adopted IN Haiti.  So, I guess that means you're going 
to have to go down there and live 2 years with the child in Haiti before 
they can get their visa...  ?

US INS has many clever and well thought out ways of keeping the numbers of 
actual visas issued to Haitians down to a minimum while the number of 
applications (and their accompanying fees, of course) stay high as a kite.
