Hilliard resident Kathleen Hansley has been waiting for two years to adopt a Haitian child. The process was completely disrupted last week when a major earthquake rocked the Caribbean nation. Now Hansley says the judge in the case is dead and her daughter’s paperwork is buried in the rubble.
Hansley, a child therapist, says once she decided to adopt a child she was utterly charmed by the Haitian toddler she calls Gracie. Hansley talked with WOSU’s Marilyn Smith.
