IBESR Post Placement Policy 2013

I just recently found out that all post placement reports for children whose adoptions have been completed since October 2012 must follow the below schedule. IBESR put this schedule into place in September/October 2012 and are now requiring it to be implemented. The post placement reports must be given to IBESR for 8 years after placement of the child with the family. This is not a policy, it is Haitian law.

Post Placement Reporting Schedule:

  • 6 months after the child is placed in the home there must be a report done by a social worker.
  • 12 months after placement a report must be done by a social worker.
  • 18 months after placement a report must be done by a social worker.
  • 24 months after placement a report must be done by a social worker.
  • 36 months (3 years) after placement a report can done by the family.
  • 48 months (4 years) after placement a report can be done by the family.
  • 60 months (5 years) after placement a report can be done by the family.
  • 72 months (6 years) after placement a report can be done by the family.
  • 84 months (7 years) after placement a report can be done by the family.
  • 96 months (8 years) after placement a report can be done by the family.

So according to this IBESR will need 4 post placement reports done by a social worker and 6 reports put together by the family. This may change but at this time, IBESR is only requiring the first 4 post placement reports to be done by the social worker/agency.

Documents required in the post placement reports for the next 8 years:

  1. A medical report by your doctor
  2. School report card or if in preschool a report telling how they are doing
  3. Psychological report (I’m not sure what they want with this. I’m trying to find out more. I think they are just wanting to know psychologically how the child is adjusting)
  4. Social Evaluation by social worker (after the first 2 years, then my understanding is that the family can write up a little history on changes in the family, the child's life, the child's development, and just general information about how the child is doing.)
