It depends I imagine.... If it was just in the Haiti government's records, then the list may be beneath rubble.... I'm surprised (in a good way) the amount of international adoptions that have been fast-tracked and red-tape cut by foreign governments when the paperwork is not complete (presumably the adoptive parents have their own, but only the paperwork needed on their end, not on the paperwork Haiti required on their end in their own systems...). One adoptive parent even said they know this could screw things up down the road (I don't know how much Haiti is being included in this fast-track process, so maybe her concern is they'll say it wasn't done properly and require the kid to go back to Haiti, and tell them they need to reprocess what they do on their end and/or ask for more money, or whatever), but she didn't care at the moment, just wanted the child to for-sure live.
