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.
