Why Does Building Arizona Families Specialize in Helping Families Interested in Adopting a Child From Haiti?
Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and has been decimated further by natural disasters. Adopting a baby from Haiti absolutely provides a future that would otherwise be impossible to attain remaining in Haiti.
As you consider international adoption, the first decision is to choose the country you would like to adopt from. Most countries that are financially stable prefer adoption within their own countries. Adoption is not available in other countries for political reasons – Russia is an example of one such country.
The second decision is to choose a credible, licensed, and Hague accredited adoption agency like Building Arizona Families which can help you narrow down your choices. For Haiti Adoptions, the IBESR (the Central Authority for adoptions in Haiti) has chosen Building Arizona Families as one of only 19 U.S. adoption agencies to continue working as Haiti adoption agencies.
All countries that allow international adoption have specific guidelines, including marital status, age, income, and health. In most instances, travel is necessary for the adoptive family as the process requires time spent with the child as well as picking up the child to bring the child to the United States. This is true of families interested in adopting a baby from Haiti or adopting a child from Haiti as well.
