10 former Haitian orphans arrive to new Oklahoma home

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Ten Haitian orphans have arrived in Oklahoma and are now with families who plan to adopt them.
The children arrived in Oklahoma City early Thursday, where they were met by their new families, many of whom attend Cherokee Hills Christian Church.
Church members have done mission work in Haiti for years and some of them plan to return to the nation soon to bring back more orphans for adoption.
After a massive earthquake rocked Haiti earlier this month, church member Belinda Lechtenberg flew there and brought back the orphans. She and her husband are adopting two of them.
Christy Ausley, the church's administrative assistant, says that since the earthquake, the church has hearf from about 75 people interested in adopting Haitian orphans.
