"We are working with the government of Haiti to establish an appropriate, efficient and expeditious process," he said. "I think probably the overwhelming concern is the safety and welfare of the child."
Duluth-based Kids ‘R' Kids childcare centers is supplying its corporate jet for the mission. Efforts to bring back children may be a long shot but they're willing to try, said Kids ‘R' Kids spokesperson Charlene Taylor.
Liberty Church of Marietta is also helping with the relief effort, Lynch said. Most of the children have already had their case studies and adoption papers worked through, he said.
Tuesday's flight, set to depart at 8 a.m. from Briscoe Field in Lawrenceville, will carry more supplies and medical workers, Lynch said. The local ministry they work with in Haiti is requesting specific equipment, including bone saws, bone drills, antibiotics and morphine.
Six adoptive parents are scheduled to be on board in hopes of bringing back the children they've made arrangements to take in. The U.N. papers must be obtained while there, Lynch said. They are praying no other hurdles arise.
"We're not giving up," Lynch said. " We serve a big God. We'll see what he can do for us."
