Haiti Adoption

America World's Haiti program is open to new families. We have dossier submission opportunities available immediately.

Haiti continues to have a great need for families to adopt children who have been orphaned due to poverty and natural disasters. The America World Haiti team has assisted families across the country in growing their families through Haiti adoption.  Learn more about how to begin the Haiti adoption process on the pages that follow. After filling out an application, receiving approval through America World’s intake process, and signing an Agreement with America World, prospective adoptive parents initiate what we call the paper pregnancy. Haiti's IBESR, the U.S. Department of State, and your local government all require specific paperwork to be completed for any adoption. During this part of the process, your America World Family Coordinator and your local Home Study Coordinator will be there to assist with the details in completing this stage.
