a country brought to its knees.

A 7.2 magnitude earthquake

has hit Haiti.

The capital, Port-au-Prince,

was literally torn apart.

The earthquake lasted all of a minute.

The intensity so strong,

within seconds a cloud of dust

covered the city.

And many people are still

trapped in the rubble.

Some may still be alive,

but getting out alive will be

a very desperate effort.

There's truly no way of knowing

just how many people are dead.

Bodies are reportedly stacked

in streets.

It's feared the number of people killed

could now reach 200,000.

200,000 children

without a mother or father

even before this earthquake.

A country which only seems

to know the worst of times

- is tonight just trying to survive.

- Mama! Mama!

But it is the human losses

which are most shocking.

Mama! Mama!

"My name is Nina.

I am seven years old. "

I can't believe we're finally here.

Are you nervous?



- Yeah.

- Yeah.

I mean, I'm excited.

We got to be close, right?

I hope so.

- Hello, hello, I'm Gabrielle.

- Hi.

Mrs. Reigert, nice to meet you finally.

- Steven.

- Shannon.

- Shannon, how are you?

- Excited.

I don't think

I've slept in a couple of days.

But we made it and we're here.

Well, let's delay no longer.

Um, actually, I'm gonna tip our driver.

Oh, no, no, that's all taken care of.

The car will wait for you.

Come on.

- Great.

- Okay.

AII I need is one more week

to secure her passport,

but all the Haitian

and Puerto Rican documents

are signed and sealed officially.


This is my office.

My assistant Maryanne.

- Hi.

- Hi.

Please make yourselves comfortable.

I'll just go and get the little one.

All right.


Do you realize when

she comes back, we're parents?


- I'm gonna take a picture.

- Okay, of course you are.

Okay, this way.


I'm Shannon.

- Bonjour.

- Bonjour.

- Merci.

- Bonjour, Nina.


Do you remember this guy

I showed you on the computer?

Boy, oh boy.

We've been getting to know each other.

Haven't we, ma petite?

I believe congratulations are in order.

Okay, squeeze up.


All you have to do now is have fun,

relax, get to know Nina.

And if I can,

I'll come down on Sunday

just to see how she's settling in.

Oh, I don't know that that's necessary.

In fact, you know, maybe it's better

- if we just spend some time...

- No, no.

They get separation anxiety.

Not that I coddled her,

but they do form attachments

in a very short period of time.

And, uh, the passport?

That should be ready

Wednesday the latest.

Well, it's so nice of you

to put us up like this.

Oh, it's all part of the service.

In my experience,

a nice quiet place by the beach

is just the right environment

for these children to bond.

To get the sense

that everything's okay now,

if you know what I mean?

I'm gonna...

Thank you.

- Bye.

- Bye.

We just became parents.

Look at this.


Hey, guys.

Let's walk down

and check out the beach.

Great idea.

The guy at the front

said it was 83 water.

Is that what they said?

You swim?

You guys going down to the surf?

- Yeah.

- Oh, it's beautiful.

It's beautiful here.

I just got here,

I'm gonna go get my trunks

and go in, I think.

- Okay.

- I'm Benjamin.

Hey, Steven Mayer.

- Nice to meet you.

- This is my wife Shannon.

- Hi, Shannon. Pleasure.

- Hi.

And our daughter Nina.

Hi, Nina. How are you?

- Where are you guys from?

- Chicago.


Chicago, Illinois. Nice.

Yeah, I was gonna say...

I'm born in Minnesota,

but yes, Chicago.

I'm a Chicago girl now.

- Yeah yeah, sure.
