Haiti International AdoptionHaiti International Adoption is not only once again possible, but necessary in light of the devastating earthquake in 2010. Many children have been left orphaned by the earthquake, and you can make a huge difference in their lives through adoption. But you will have to be flexible and have patience. Here are the details:
Not an Easy ProcessThe infrastructure in Haiti that made international adoptions possible was frail before the 2010 earthquake. Now things are even worse. Haiti is struggling to recover from the earthquake, and many people remain homeless, making the task of determining whether children are truly orphans even more daunting.
A Reputable Agency is CrucialBecause conditions in Haiti are still chaotic, it is crucial that you locate and use the services of an agency that already has a relationship with an orphanage in Haiti before starting the adoption process. As always, do your homework before giving your money to an agency.
Do a thorough search on the internet and talk to families who have used that agency. Also check the agency's BBB ratings.
Be FlexibleFamilies have reported turning in all the required documents, and then being required to prepare and submit them again. A Haiti international adoption is possible, but expect some twists and turns along the way.
Normally only one trip is required to complete a Haiti adoption, but don't be surprised if you have to make two. Completing one of these adoptions is a great way to learn patience! The process now takes three years from the time you submit your application to when you travel to pick up your child.
Be CautiousThe U.S. Embassy has rated Haiti as a critical threat for crime, so be cautious while traveling in Haiti. Keep your money and wallet in a front pocket, carry a cell phone with you at all times, and keep alert.
