Our International Family Adoption Agency Supports the Parenting Journey

International Family Adoption Agency

As an international family adoption agency, Building Arizona Families recognizes that a common issue among children who are adopted internationally or from foster care is food hoarding or food issues. While it can be frustrating to deal with as a parent, there are some strategies to handling it successfully.

Our International Family Adoption Agency Supports Adoptive Parents and Parenting Children with Food Issues

The trauma of an experience, maybe years in the past, could still live with and haunt adopted children. They may have had a deep-seated belief they were going to starve. This belief propels them to take extra food when they are full, take a fist full of candy, or hide snacks under the bed. Here are a few key responses to food issues that may bring healthy results.

1. Compassion. Many adoptive parents can’t imagine what it was like to be starving as an infant, toddler, or youngster. Remember where your adopted child has come from, what their brain is whispering to them, and what they live with.

2.  Reassurance. Let your adopted child know it’s going to be okay, that you will take care of them, and assure them there is enough to eat. It’s reassurance that builds up self-confidence and belief that they actually will be okay. It’s reassurance that plants seeds of trust deep. While the trauma of not getting enough food to eat may always live with your adopted child, you can bring about a sense of peace.

3.  Freedom. Give your adopted child a box, a bag, or a place where they can get food and let them know it is there specifically for them if they feel hungry and put their name on it. This will allow freedom for reassurance that there will be food for them and it gives them control.

These strategies may take some time to implement. Remember, food issues and food hoarding come from a place we may not understand. It’s a deep-seated belief there won’t be enough, they’ll be left out, or have to go without. That’s something no human being should ever have to go through. For adopted children, we can do much to help ease their worries and find comfort.

Devoted, Safe and Loving Homes are Needed Desperately for Children

Our Hague Accredited, International Haiti Adoption Agency Supports You

Whether completing an international Haiti adoption or another kind of adoption, an adoptive family will have many adjustments to make when they bring home their adopted child. As a licensed, non-profit, international Hague accredited adoption agency, we are dedicated to helping our families throughout their international Haiti adoption journey.

When a newly-adopted child, regardless of age, joins the family, both the parents and the child face a period of adjustment. The parents will be getting used to the new role of parenting, and the child will be adjusting to his or her new home and family.

Building Arizona Families Offers Adoption Support for our Forever Families

It is important to understand that the process of domestic and international Haiti adoption and the removal from a birth mother, orphanage, or foster home to an entirely different home and perhaps from another country is a huge change and it can be quite traumatic. Try to see the world from your child’s point of view including the new sounds, smells, food, people, lights, and clothing they are experiencing. Be aware that your child will be grieving. Babies do grieve the loss of the birth mother, sometimes for weeks and months. Some babies withdraw emotionally or cry inconsolably for the first few days. This grief often emerges once they are more settled in their new home. Older children grieve the loss of the life they knew; all they knew is gone and they had no control over anything.

Here are some suggestions for helping you and your child to adjust:

1. Ease the trauma of transition as much as possible. Ask about routines, likes, and dislikes. Some parents have been able to send a receiving blanket or stuffed animal beforehand with their own body scent on it so the child recognizes them by smell. Even if washed on return, it will then have the familiar smell of their prior home to comfort them. When you receive your child, leave the original clothing on for the first few hours or days if possible, keep at least one piece of clothing if permitted (take new clothes to exchange), and keep it, unwashed, in their bed for a few days. Keep food changes to a minimum and slowly transition to new formula or food.

2. Minimize your child’s exposure to anyone outside the family for the first few weeks after international Haiti adoption placement. Let no one else hold the baby except the parents, even at the airport on your triumphant arrival home. Isolate yourselves with your new child at home for the first week or two, with as few visitors as possible. Do not let visitors hold your baby. If family members want to help, ask them to bring meals, do shopping and errands, or clean the house. If challenged, say the social worker or doctor advised this early isolation.

3. Recreate the routine. A predictable routine will help your child feel safe and secure. Keep everything quiet and low-key for a few weeks with no welcome home parties or other excitement.

4. Focus on building attachment in the early weeks at home post-international Haiti adoption. Lots of physical contact is very important. Hold and carry the child as much as possible. Use a baby sling or cloth carrier to carry her or him facing inwards against your body. Wear your baby all day while you go about household tasks or out shopping or walking. Play together. Newly-adopted babies should be responded to when they cry in the night. Leaving a baby or child to cry is not appropriate for newly-adopted children.

5. Prepare as much as you can beforehand.

6. You will feel exhausted. Get your support system in place before you return.

7.  Take time for yourself, your spouse, and your other children. You need to take care of yourself. Make sure you eat nutritious food, get some exercise, and don’t neglect your marriage.

8. Get help from your support network when you feel stressed. If you feel overwhelmed, exhausted, or depressed or are feeling frustrated or worried about your child’s behavior, talk it over with another adoptive parent you know and trust. Don’t hesitate to call your social worker about problems and don’t pretend everything is fine when there are problems.

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.

Building Arizona Families’ International Haiti Adoption

Haiti Adoption

As of May 2020, Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Without adequate food, health care, and education,  “A child born today in Haiti will be only 45 percent as productive when she grows up as she could be if she had enjoyed full health and education.” (World Bank Human Index). Haiti adoption provides a secure, healthy life with many of the resources children need to succeed that are unavailable in their homeland. 

Educational outcomes for Haitian children unfortunately do not provide the platform they need to succeed. “On average Haitian children attend 11.4 years of school by age 18, which is equivalent of 6.3 years of adjusted learning and is the lowest score in the region” (World Bank Human Index). Thousands of vulnerable Haiti children are hoping for the opportunity to have a productive future. They are hoping and praying for a loving family to adopt them. Haiti adoption gives a child the life they deserve and a better future with their adoptive family.

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.
