Members of a relief effort to bring medical supplies to quake-ravaged Haiti flew out of Briscoe Field in Lawrenceville Tuesday morning. Hopes of returning with orphans Tuesday evening, however, have been all but dashed as the Haitian government has clamped down on international adoptions.
The increased restrictions have not extinguished the efforts of Dan Lynch, co-founder of God's Plumbline Ministry of Acworth, who was aboard the flight. Lynch said he still plans to explore the possibility of bringing back children to adoptive parents in the United States. In the meantime, the group is delivering medical supplies to help doctors care for the injured.
