WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Amy Klobuchar says two Minnesota women

who were briefly detained in Haiti had "all the right paperwork"

when they were prevented from bringing six orphans to the United

States.

Klobuchar said Monday night that adoptive mother Sarah Thacker

of Fergus Falls and volunteer Stephanie Anderson have been able to

visit with the children since being stopped from leaving Haiti on

Saturday.

The senator says there was a misunderstanding at the

Port-au-Prince airport over some of the adoption paperwork.

She said two of the children, including Thacker's, were coming

to Minnesota. She says the other four had been adopted by families

elsewhere.
