Overview

Update 2014: Haiti has undergone many changes due to its recent ratification of the Hague Convention. Haiti's central authority for international adoption, IBESR, will now play a major role in the matching of children with adoptive applicants. Haitian adoptions under the new law and policies are expected to take between 16 and 24 months from dossier submission to the Haitian government to homecoming once the new procedures are fully implemented. Due to delays with implementing the new procedures, families are likely to experience a wait of several months to a year for the referral of a child, particularly if they request to adopt a single child age two years or younger.

Children Available for Adoption in Haiti: Children aged twelve months through ten years are in need of permanent, loving families. Most of the children have no permanent health or developmental concerns, but families are needed for children with special needs as well. Sibling groups are common. Most were raised by loving birth families. Children are tested for HIV, Hepatitis, TB, and Sickle Cell.

Parent Qualifications: Haiti's new adoption law of November, 2013 allows families meeting the following criteria to adopt:

  • opposite sex married couples with at least one parent age 30 or and both parents no older than age 50
  • five years of marriage OR five years of cohabitation
  • families may have any number of biological and adopted children provided they can provide for the new adopted child(ren)
  • please note that Haiti will not permit same sex couples to adopt

OR

  • single applicants age 35 to 50
  • single applicants may have any number of biological and adopted children provided they can provide for the new adopted child(ren)

Travel: You will travel to Haiti at least twice.

Timeline:  Though it may be shorter, the average adoption from Haiti takes between 18-24 months to complete.
