If you want to open your arms, heart, and home to grow your family through adoption, adopting a child from Haiti is a joyous choice! Building Arizona Families can help – we are one of just a handful of U.S. agencies that are approved by the Haitian government to serve as Haiti adoption agencies in facilitating international adoptions from their country.

Adopting a Child From Haiti Provides a Future When There Might Not Have Been One

Haiti is the most impoverished nation in the Western Hemisphere, so adopting a child from Haiti creates a future for a child that otherwise would have faced an almost certain life of poverty. Sadly, many Haitian families cannot provide for their children and are forced to give them to a local creche (orphanage) to ensure the child will have the necessary food, clothing and medical care.

Haiti Adoption Process Takes Time

Haitian children are beautiful, generally healthy, and very adaptable, particularly when it comes to adopting a baby from Haiti. Do keep in mind that the international adoption process takes time, and you will be required to visit the child twice during the adoption process. The second trip is a 6-day bonding trip before you are allowed to bring the child home. The entire Haiti adoption process can take on average of 24-30 months. It can go faster or slower, depending upon the individual case, but patience is always a prerequisite when adopting a child from Haiti.

Haiti Adoption Agencies Must Be Hague Accredited

Haiti adoption agencies are required by international law and the Haitian government to be Hague accredited. This accreditation confirms that the international adoption requirements that protect the best interest of the child are a being carefully followed. As mentioned previously, Building Arizona Families is one of the few Haiti adoption agencies permitted to facilitate adoption of Haitian children into the U.S., and we have a wonderful working relationship with the Haitian government. They have placed their trust in us, knowing that we are committed to the children that we serve. Building Arizona Families is also committed to the Haitian people as a whole, and we are involved on a humanitarian level in Haiti to help strengthen families and protect children.

Adopting Children From Haiti in 2019 Changes a Child’s Future Forever

The holidays in Haiti for orphans are very different than the holidays for foster children in America. Being a foster child in the U.S. is very difficult, but financial resources for the care of foster children is provided through government funding. Resources are scarce in Haiti, as Haiti is the most impoverished country in the Western Hemisphere. Over 80% of Haitian residents live in poverty, and frequently the most impoverished families are forced to give their children to the creches (orphanages) as they are unable to feed and clothe them. Haiti adoption truly changes a child’s future.  Building Arizona Families is an accredited adoption agency, and one of the few U.S. adoption agencies approved to handle international adoption from Haiti by the Haitian government.

Joyous Orphaned Haiti Children Dream About Forever Families – Will You Consider Adopting Children From Haiti?

Despite the poverty in Haiti, (ranked below many African countries) the children are usually joyful, generally healthy, and resourceful. A discarded water bottle can become a doll, and rolled up rags can become a ball that provides hours of play! At Christmas, a soccer ball for a Haitian creche goes a long way to make the children happy, as do items like new socks and shoes or a box of crayons. If a child being raised in these difficult circumstances tugs at your heartstrings, we invite you during this New Year to consider adopting a child from Haiti.

We Will Walk With You Through the International Adoption Process

International adoption from Haiti requires working with an internationally accredited adoption agency with an adoption agreement from the Haitian government. Building Arizona Families is delighted that our adoption agency was chosen to be one of only a handful of agencies in the United States that is approved to facilitate adoption of Haitian children. Our relationship with the Haitian government is very positive, and our adoption agency is able to process Haitian adoptions with relative ease because of the relationship we enjoy.

Building Arizona Families Personally Understands the Haiti Adoption Process

Building Arizona Families is deeply committed to the children of Haiti, and we are involved in humanitarian work along with our adoption work. Some of the staff at our internationally accredited adoption agency have adopted children internationally, and so we are also deeply committed to the prospective adoptive families that we serve. We understand the process personally, and we work hard to ensure that the adoptive process goes as smoothly as possible for the children and families we serve through the Haiti adoption process.
