Do you want to build your forever family with a child or children who face a dismal future without your safe home and loving care? Please consider adopting a child from Haiti. As the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, the Haitian children living in orphanages urgently need loving, safe forever families where they can have a bright future. Could that be you? Haiti adoption is not a simple process, but changing a child’s life forever is certainly worth it!
The Haitian government provides the guidelines on who is eligible to adopt. Adopting a child from Haiti requires the parent to be at least 21 years older than the child. Married couples are required to be between 30 and 49 years of age and to have been married at least five years. There is no marriage requirement, but single people must be between the ages of 35 and 49 years old. Additionally, anyone with a criminal history is not eligible to adopt. A Haiti adoption can take between 24 – 30 months to complete with several steps in between.
The process of adopting a child from Haiti includes pre-adoptive training, building a dossier of required documentation, child matching, visiting/bonding with your prospective adoptive child, US Embassy paperwork, and then waiting for approvals. Building Arizona Families, a licensed, non-profit, Hague accredited adoption agency is one of just a handful of adoption agencies that has the privilege of serving Haitian children.
