Adoption News

Someone called me yesterday to talk about adoption lawyers and if I could refer them to a couple of good lawyers.  This person had been doing some “private” adoptions for American families and the lawyer she was using was becoming “difficult” and she was considering changing lawyers.

It was the news she told me after we talked about lawyers that got me excited!  She said that from IBESR to Passport was taking her about 8 months!  I find that SO exciting!  Wow!  We haven’t had adoptions here in Haiti that have taken less than a year for the last 4 years or more! Haitian adoptions have just taken longer and longer and it was trend that just has been happening in the last 10 years.

Since we have just recently had dossiers go into IBESR, we do not know how long it will take for an adoption to finish.  Now, I have a time line that I can push our lawyer to meet!  If another lawyer can do up to the passport in 8 months, then I expect our lawyer to do the same or even less!

For me, this is such exciting news!  If we can get adoptions finished in less than a year, families and children will be so blessed!  Babies might still be babies and older children will spend less time in an orphanage setting.

Please pray with us that this will continue and children will go home to their “forever” families quickly!

... that will be more than wonderful. Does the law still exists that families must come to the judge to sign papers before ending of the adoption ?
