IBESR Policy Changes effective end of August

In July, all creches (adoption homes) received a draft of new policies that IBESR is putting into place effective the 21st of August.  IBESR asked that the creche directors look at the new policies that conform with the Hague Convention which Haiti voted on and passed a few months ago.  IBESR administration asked us to review the policies and to give our recommendations.  

The new policies offer more protection for children and will put in to effect some reforms in the way children are placed for adoption.  There are quite a few new requirements for those orphanages already authorized to do adoptions but the exact implementation is not clear.  Do we have to get these things ready for when we have to ask for authorization again which is in October or do we have to do it now?  The new policies cost about costs but none of us know the exact costs yet.

All foreign adoption agencies working with creches in Haiti must also be registered with the Haitian government.  So agencies are scrambling to get their paperwork that is required together and sent to Haiti.  IBESR is requiring that these foreign agencies must be registered through the Minister of Social Affairs and personally, I have no idea how to do this for an agency outside of Haiti!  So we will have to find this all out and apply.

IBESR administration wants to keep adoptions going, so we are praying that they will be flexible on the timing to implement these policies and realize that 3 weeks for some of the requirements is not feasible.

We do not foresee that the new policies will completely shut down adoptions for now, but there are still a lot of unknown factors that we are trying to sort out.  I will keep you aware through posts as quickly as I can.  I don't necessarily post things right away.  I know some people do and all it does is cause panic!  I would rather see the stress levels down and not having people panic by what they think might happen!

God is in control and I am relying on God to watch out for the children and the adoptive parents and giving us the things we need to keep adoptions moving at GLA.

Dixie, Thank-you for putting this up! Our family has a dossier that is either there on a desk somewhere or on its way. Adoption is such a long process; we're anxiously looking forward to the time we hopefully get to meet our new little one. Keeping us in the loop makes the waiting a little bit easier, even if it isn't always the most exciting (or maybe encouraging) news. We will be praying for the GLA in the implementation of all of these new policies and changes. And again, thank-you. Becca

Dixie, Thanks for the updates on all this stuff: So hard to know what it all will really mean. I especially appreciate these two things you said: 1. I will keep you aware through posts as quickly as I can. I don’t necessarily post things right away. I know some people do and all it does is cause panic! I would rather see the stress levels down and not having people panic by what they think might happen! 2.

I hope that these changes will convince our provincial government (British Columbia, Canada) that Haiti has re-established adoption offices, authorities, and policies so that our province can open again.

Thank you so much for the update. Have you heard any discussions about modifying the age requirements as part of the changes to meet Hague requirements? Thanks Sam
