Adoptive father brings Haitian son home to Wisconsin


JANESVILLE (WKOW) --  A Janesville family is complete this afternoon, after a father headed to Haiti this week to bring his adopted son home.

27 New first brought you the story of Shawn and Katie Banker earlier this week. They'd finalized the paperwork to adopt their 16-year-old son Nady just before the earthquake, and were simply waiting on a visa.

After the earthquake in Haiti, Shawn decided to head to Haiti to bring his son home.

27 News just received word that both Shawn and Nady are home in Wisconsin, safe and sound!

The family has asked not to do any follow up interviews yet as they adjust to the changes involved in their new life.

27 News is delighted to have shared the family's story of courage in the face of such devastation in Haiti.
