I mean that it is OFTEN the case that couples who wish to have children of the same ethic background as them are often put on a list that could take YEARS until it gets around to them. If a white couple (God forbid a Liberal says this is racist, I'll boot them on the spot) but if a white couple wants a white baby, good luck - it could take years.
Sure, you can get a screwed up white kid that has been passed around through the system from foster home to foster home and is likely mentally effected by this type of abuse (let's say although most foster parents are in it for the right reasons, many are in it for the check - just another Welfare scam) and it is those poor kids that are messed up when you'd get them.
But your goal is a baby, not a 10 year old that has seen 7 different foster homes and been trouble in each after being a product of the Welfare system where dope was bought and not food, so they were removed.
I say Haitians only because of the Earth Quakes, quickened export rules to American families have been made to place Haitian Babies and children - for no other reason.
But God forbid, you want to raise a child the same color as you (no matter what your color) then you are called prejudice - when the only thought you had was that JUST MAYBE in the long term it may make the life for the child a bit easier growing up looking something like the rest of the family.
I'm not giving a disclaimer, I don't need to. I raised a boy for nearly 10 years. I took him in when the state removed him from his family for many of the reasons this long post has covered. Was he a white kid, yep - would I have done the same if he were a black kid, absolutely. He was in trouble and needed a mentor, someone to watch after him while his parents got their lives straightened out. - which took years.
But adopting is the question here, and the choices are slim unless you are willing to deal with a child who is the survivor of an earth quake, a crack baby or other possibly screwed up kids. I know they need love too, but many people want a child they can start out life with who has no memories of horror and loss. Some people want a child that is given up at birth for adoption and a child who they hope never needs to ask why I look so different from parents and siblings. Not everyone feels the need to share with an adopted child (at least until much later in life) that they are adopted. I believe adopted children have the right to know that their parents have/had medical issues that could concern them, but generally speaking I think it is a very personal choice if people decide to tell their children the truth or not.
I'll give an example without saying to much. I know someone who is not the biological parent of three children - they are all teens now and do not know. It is their parents choice to not tell them that DNA speaking, the man who loves and raised them and continues to love and care for them is NOT their biological father - they believe it does NO GOOD to tell the the truth. Again, who am I to say what is right in their case. I can't say for sure what I would do because I am not them, but I tend to believe I too would not tell them that I am not their real father. The real father was a frozen test tube. I don't think they need to know that.
So don't get riled up on the Haiti Baby thing, it gets down to supply and demand, sadly enough - just like everything else on this planet. And if you aren't too picky, you can have a baby practically over-nighted to you. If you are picky, then expect to be at the bottom of a huge pile of paper work on some obscure desk in some poorly lit corner of a bureaucrats office.
