Sunny Ridge Announces New Haiti Adoption Program

Haiti adoption

Sunny Ridge is pleased to announce a new Haiti Adoption Program, having been selected as one of the US adoption agencies accredited to operate as an adoption facilitator in Haiti. This accreditation comes as the Haitian government now completes the necessary changes to convert their system to Hague Convention standards for intercountry adoption.
Haiti’s central authority for international adoption, l’Institut du Bien-Etre Sociale et de Recherches (IBESR), will now play a major role in the matching of children with adoptive applicants. The accreditation process began last summer when Haiti ratified the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption.
In the days ahead, Sunny Ridge will be learning more about the new Haitian adoption laws and procedures so that they may present information and details about the program to families interested. They are delighted to have the opportunity to place more children into forever families through our Haiti Adoption Program.
Those interested in adopting from Haiti are encouraged to contact Amy Trotter, Executive Director for Programs, at (630) 754-4514
