Adoption Haiti

Many amazing organizations help children around the world who need love, protection, and a forever family.

Adopting from Haiti Will Change a Child’s Life Forever 

Learning How to Support Your New Child’s Life Transitions 

Haiti adoptions are incredible journeys to change a child’s life. It is important, however, to be aware that early life experiences will affect your child. Every child who has lost their birth family and lived in an orphanage has experienced trauma. Be prepared to be a part of your adopted Haitian child’s healing by addressing the effects of the trauma they have experienced. 

Learning About Becoming a Multicultural Family 

One important way of easing the transition into a different culture and family is by integrating parts of their Haitian culture into your family’s everyday life. It could be by cooking their favorite Haitian foods or learning to speak some Haitian Creole. Learning about and celebrating your child’s birth culture will help them develop a healthy identity while you expand your understanding of the Haitian people.

Letting Go of Control to Let Love and Happiness In 

During your Haiti adoption journey, there are many aspects of the process that are out of your control. Adoption timelines and approvals by the Haitian government are a couple of the items that require you to be flexible and patient. While the journey provides lessons in patience and relinquishment of control, they can yield happiness and joy, giving you rich life lessons that will be invaluable for your family’s future. 

Embracing Profound Life Change 

International Haiti adoption will have its challenges, but it will also bring you the joy of growing your forever family. Your heart and core will profoundly grow when bringing your adopted child from Haiti into your family.

Haiti Adoption Requirements Helps Put Children First

Haiti adoption requirements

Many women and men who long for children experience pain and heartache.  This heartache can turn to joy through welcoming a beautiful and ready to be loved child into your loving embrace. There are also men and women already raising children who know how great the need is for Haiti orphans to have loving, stable homes.  They open their hearts and homes to provide loving security so desperately needed by Haiti orphans.

Building Arizona Families is a Hague accredited Arizona adoption agency helping women and men around the United States find the joy and laughter they have been waiting for. Our agency is only one of a handful of adoption agencies that the Haitian government has chosen to work with.  One of the reasons we are a selected agency is that our staff are very knowledgeable in regards to fulfilling Haiti adoption requirements including government applications/forms, and the actual requirements included by the government in the adoption process.  The process is stringent and time consuming, because the Haitian government takes its’ responsibility to protect children very seriously.  Families who are adopting Haitian children really wouldn’t want it any other way- it’s right to put the children first always.

Meeting the Haiti Adoption Requirements for a Brighter Future

The Haiti government protects their native children and wants to ensure they have a bright and promising future ahead of them. They adhere strongly to their Haiti adoption requirements to find the very best of homes for their children needing a forever family. Unfortunately, the land conditions, illness, natural disasters and poverty in Haiti cause hardship and hopeless conditions for its people, children included. Many families in the U.S., however, are eligible to adopt a child from Haiti and give them the forever family they wish for. 

The list of Haiti adoption requirements are issued by the Haitian government in order to ensure it is finding safe, loving homes for its children. Some of the requirements adoptive families would need to meet are:

  • Opposite-sex married couples, one parent at least the age of 30 and both parents not older than age 48
  • Single women must be 35-48 years old
  • Financially stable in order to provide for the child
  • No one in the home can have any unlawful activity in their background 

Find out more about the Haiti adoption requirements HERE, and see if your family is eligible to adopt a beautiful child from Haiti waiting for their forever home. 

How the Laws of Haiti Adoption Requirements Changed Haiti Adoption 

In 2013, the Haiti Parliament voted to change the adoption laws that were previously written in 1974. The New Adoption Law for Haiti was put in place, giving adoptive families new criteria in order to meet the new adoption requirements. The Haitian government proceeded to hand select a group of Hague accredited adoption agencies that would work in the best interest of the children of Haiti. Building Arizona Families was one of the adoption agencies the Haitian government chose to successfully work with. 

Our Hague accredited adoption agency has found many wonderful adoptive homes for the children of Haiti with families around the U.S. We have been blessed to see these families flourish with love brought into their forever family. 

If your family meets the adoption requirements for Haiti, you too can experience the overwhelming love and joy that adopting a child from Haiti could bring into your life. These children are strong, beautiful, and loving children wanting love and safety for their future.

Be a Forever Parent of Haitian Child in Need with Haiti Adoption Agency

Haiti adoption agencies

Orphaned children in Haiti need forever homes and forever parents to give these vulnerable children hope for a healthy, happy life. Our U.S. based, internationally accredited adoption agency works with the Haiti government to help these children in need. Building Arizona Families is one of only a handful of Haiti adoption agencies approved by the Haiti government to serve as a Haiti adoption agency for U.S. families.

U.S. Families Have so Much to Share!

Lifestyles and amenities available to us in the United States can sometimes go unappreciated because of the availability of plentiful resources. Clean, flowing water, safe shelter, nutritious food, access to medical care and quality education are all readily available for U.S. families.

When children from Haiti are adopted by a family in the United States, they are given the chance to share in these opportunities. The availability of health care, education, and proper nutrition are fundamental essentials in a U.S. child’s life, and unfortunately, due to the impoverished state of Haiti, many Haitian children are not able to receive the care and attention they need.

How Haiti’s Poverty is Impacting Children

Haiti has experienced devastating hardship that negatively impacts Haitian people every day. Haiti is vulnerable to natural disasters, mainly hurricanes, and more than 96% of the population are exposed to these natural disasters. The country is trying its best to build resilience, but as the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, more than 6 million Haitians live on less than $2.41 US dollars a day.

This leaves many children without proper nutrition, medical attention, and a safe home to grow up in. There are so many children in some Haiti orphanages that they sometimes have to turn away children in need. However, we can help these children find a beautiful, loving family and a safe home to grow up in.

Children from the ages of infancy to 12 years old are waiting to have a forever family and be provided the necessities needed to thrive. As one of the internationally accredited Haiti adoption agencies, we are deeply investing in helping the people of Haiti and working in conjunction with their government to serve as a Haiti adoption agency for U.S. families, our relationships in Haiti are strong. Because Building Arizona Families has built a relationship of trust with the Haitian government, we are able to manage the internal paperwork for you, and help you more easily walk through the 24-36 month Haiti adoption process. We would be honored to serve you as you begin this beautiful chapter in your life.

Adopting The Children That Are Really In Need

While the vast majority of Haiti orphans are typically healthy, there is an urgent need for forever families for special needs children. With limited medical supplies, low availability of doctors, and harmful environmental factors, children with special needs are in desperate need of loving homes. Special needs seen in Haiti children are malnutrition, HIV, anemia, and children that are victims of neglect. These children sadly do not receive the care they need due to the widespread poverty in their country.

However, they still need help and loving forever homes! They urgently need to be provided with proper medical and developmental care. With selfless, loving families in the United States like yours, the children with special needs that are languishing can find love, happiness, and hope for their futures. If your family can provide a forever home for a special needs Haitian child, please visit us HERE to find out more information on International adoption through our Haiti adoption agency.

Whether special needs or not, every child deserves to be safe and loved. Are you feeling called to change a child’s life? Are you and your family able and willing to transform the future for a Haiti child? If so, adopting a child through an internationally accredited and Haiti government-approved adoption agency may be the perfect way to grow your forever family and provide a life that is above and beyond a Haiti child’s expectations.
