Developing a Home Safety Plan to Help Your Adopted Child Achieve Felt Safety in Their New Home

A crucial step in the bonding and attachment process with your adopted child is helping them develop feelings of safety in their new home and family. Developing a Home Safety Plan can be part of this process. This is especially important with older children and with children who have been adopted internationally. Here are steps to help you develop a plan:

1. Develop a written safety plan and post it in an accessible place in your home. Include emergency phone numbers and an outline of your home with arrows showing the paths to any exits. Take into consideration different types of emergencies, such as medical, fire, storms, extreme heat/cold, etc. when developing your plans.
2. As age-appropriate, walk your child through your plans step-by-step so that they become familiar. Use pictures. Use this as an opportunity to identify any special considerations you may need to make or any specific responsibilities your child may have (e.g. waiting for a parent versus leaving the home unaccompanied). Identify and practice the safe paths to leave your home and a specific location to meet, like a neighbor’s house, in case you get separated.
3. Ensure that your children have ways to get in touch with you if needed. Help them memorize important phone numbers and teach them about knowing how to ask trusted adults for help. Teach them to use the phone or text.
4. Go over example situations in which your child may need to ask for help. Some children may have trouble identifying what is an emergency or not, depending on their age or developmental needs, so rehearsing possible situations can be helpful. For example, what do they need to do if you become separated at the store and that hiding when you are shopping is not a fun game.
5. Plan for the long term. Emergencies, even small ones, can awaken old traumas or be traumatic in their own right and may require additional aftercare. Being aware of this ahead of time can help you know what to look for in the long run, if an emergency does end up occurring.
6. You, as the parent, need to remain calm. Teach your child you are safe and can be trusted. Responding to the child’s concerns helps build a lasting bond that starts with trust.

International Haiti Adoption Protects Haitian Children From Risks

International Adoption Haiti

Despite the global pandemic, Building Arizona Families is still providing services to begin, or continue the international Haiti adoption journey. The IBESR (also the Central Authority for adoptions in Haiti) has chosen BAF to place children from Haiti with adoptive families in the United States since 2005. 

When the Haitian government recognized the serious risks children face in institutions, they acknowledged the importance of transitioning away from institutions to more community-based support to improve children’s outcomes. In an attempt to protect Haitian orphans from a life full of uncertainty and instability, the Haitian government strives to provide better for these children. These efforts include actively planning and developing appropriate alternative placements, like international Haiti adoption. 

There is a great need for families to adopt Haitian children and offer them a stable, loving family. We are currently seeking families who would like to adopt children over the age of six and are open to adopting siblings. An unknown but not forgotten number of children in Haiti need a healthier and safer life. Learn more about Haiti adoptions at Building Arizona Families HERE and let us know how we can better serve you on your international Haiti adoption journey.

Building Forever Families by Adopting Children from Haiti

Adopting Children From Haiti

When adopting children from Haiti, forever families can begin to provide children with the love and attention they deserve. But forever families also provide essential life necessities for children they may commonly go without. Every child deserves a chance at a family, especially at this time. Adoption provides love, community, and connection.

Even with all that is going on right now, our Haiti team is communicating with our partners and parents daily. We understand the anxiety and uncertainty that this outbreak can produce, but we also encourage families to be optimists. Where can we see the opportunity in a difficult time to grow and learn? Times like this can show us where we need to learn to become better versions of ourselves, and it also can show us where we are stronger in one area or another—stronger and more resilient than we ever knew.

Hopeful Adoptive Parents can Still Adopt During This Unique Time

Although a family might be sheltered-in at this time, that doesn’t mean they cannot move forward in their wish to become a parent to a child in need. In fact, hopeful adoptive families can begin the adoption process now and can seize the opportunity to show themselves in a unique light and to tell their story in a very human way. Not only will others be able to relate, but hopeful adoptive parents could use this unique moment in time to show just how calm, cool, and collected they will be as parents. Yes, we all do look a little less put together than we may want to present ourselves, but perfection doesn’t define love, community, and connection. This is a once in a lifetime situation that is playing out each day before our eyes. As we continue doing home studies for our families (read more about home studies HERE) and working with hopeful parents, our approach will be gentle and our advice will be simple: If you are ready, adopting children from Haiti now is a great time to showcase yourself in an honest light. Real people build real families founded in love.
