Haiti is still in shambles and I hate to admit it, but it will probably remain in shambles for years to come.

At this point in time, Haiti is the equivalent of a third world country. If stable, working adults around the globe are able and willing to adopt Haitian children, pulling them from the mud and the muck, more power to them.
