Streamline Adoptions?

With what will undoubtedly be the creation of a large number of orphans in Haiti as a result of the hurrican, has anyone heard any talk of streamlining the adoption process for new applications (i.e., not those adoptions initiated prior to the hurricane)? My wife and I have many times considered adopting a child from Haiti but have not pursued it due to the seemingly endless bureaucratic hurdles and the ethical concerns of devoting so much money to adopting a single child vs helping many children in Haiti. However, if the process were to be significantly streamlined, this could obviate these concerns.
Many thanks,
