Before the Haiti earthquake in January, there were about 380,000 orphans in Haiti. Today, experts estimate there are more than 1 million. The conditions are dangerous. There is little food and water, widespread disease and the threat of vulnerable children being sold into slavery.

Baptist aid workers from Idaho made headlines when they were arrested for trying to take 33 children out of Haiti without permission, sparking a debate about what is best for the orphaned children of Haiti.
