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.

Feeling Confident in Beginning the Haiti Adoption Process

Haiti Adoption Process

Are you considering international adoption? Have you looked into adopting from Haiti? As an internationally accredited and Haitian government approved adoption agency, Building Arizona Families is here to help you better understand the Haiti adoption process so you can feel confident in the next steps to take. 

Taking the First Step, Choosing Your Adoption Agency 

Adopting a precious child from Haiti is an amazing, life changing decision. All children deserve the love of a family and the opportunity to thrive. Haiti adoption allows these children to find love, safety, and security in their forever home. 

Finding an adoption agency you trust is the first step of beginning the Haiti adoption process. Building Arizona Families is a non-profit, Hague accredited adoption agency (required for legal international adoption) and is one of just 19 U.S. adoption agencies permitted to work in Haiti. Our agency would be honored to support your family on this amazing journey and watch as your family grows through adoption! 

Step by Step Haiti Adoption Process

The Haiti adoption process takes about 24 months. After contacting Building Arizona Families, these are the next steps in the adoption process:

• Complete a home study. This can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months. During a home study, there are different interviews that will take place to get to know the adoptive family. A social worker will also take time learning about your home and seeing the environment your child will live in.

• Apply for adoption eligibility. This typically takes up to 3 months and determines if requirements are met to adopt from Haiti. 

• Waiting for referral. With a longer time frame, this can take about 6 to 8 months due to Haitian legal intricacies.

• Socialization period. For two weeks the adoptive family travels to Haiti to complete their socialization period with their adoptive child. 

• Gaining Haitian government approval to adopt. This can take up to 8 months for the Haitian government to give final approval of adoption. 

• Bringing your child home! The final trip is a six day bonding period where you will bond with your child before taking them home. At the end of the six days the family can return to the USA with their new child!
