The teen girl who Rebecca Williams was set to adopt already had the dress she planned to wear on what she calls her "voyage" home to the United States. But the trip from Haiti to Tampa, Fla., might never happen for 15-year-old Darline.
On the day she was to get the passport that would allow her to come home to her adoptive family, a magnitude-7 earthquake ravaged her home country. Now Darline's adoption is in limbo, along with those of hundreds of other orphans being adopted by U.S. families.
