When making the decision to begin the Haiti adoption journey, choosing the right adoption agency is an essential first step. Your adoption agency should be committed to providing high levels of service and communication during the adoption process. Above all else, the right adoption agency is one that is appropriately certified, accredited, and licensed. A Hague accredited adoption agency is required for Haiti adoptions to ensure that the best interests of the child are always first and foremost.
At Building Arizona Families, we understand the adoption journey, as many of our staff members have adopted children themselves! We will walk with your family with compassion, the utmost professionalism, and expertise in handling the many aspects of Haiti adoptions. We are a Hague accredited, licensed, local adoption agency which has also been accredited by the Haitian government.
How is a Hague Accredited Adoption Agency Different?
A Hague accreditation means an adoption agency goes through rigorous evaluation by an international adoption accrediting organization. Countries permitting international adoption require Hague accreditation for adoption agencies to work in their country. Standards and practices like adoptive parent recruitment, placement of special needs children, home study comprehensiveness, and adoptive family education are all intensely evaluated.
Being Hague accredited means an agency is operating under the highest standards. Not only is Building Arizona Families Hague accredited, but we have been chosen as one of only 19 U.S. adoption agencies to continue working in Haiti. Since 2005, we have been serving adoptive families as they adopt children from Haiti. We are committed to working with families to successfully complete adoptions from Haiti.
