Md. Couple Will Meet Haitian Daughter Friday

Little girl had been living in a Port-au-Prince orphanage

The adoptive parents of a 3-year-old Haitian girl say they expect to finally meet their daughter Friday when she and more than 100 other orphans are airlifted to Miami.

Dave and Christie Hubner of Frederick, Md. said Thursday they've been told by the orphanage operator that Ila will arrive in Miami on Friday.

The orphanage in earthquake-stricken Port-au-Prince is run by a Kingsland, Texas-based Christian ministry called For His Glory Adoption Outreach. The group says on its Web site that 109 children will be on the flight. It says the orphanage is out of diapers and low on food, and that security is a constant worry.

Another adoption agency, Bethany Christian Services, says 80 more orphans will be united with their adoptive families Thursday night in Miami.
