A child waits...
The children of Haiti are beautiful. While some of them are orphaned, the majority of children come to adoption by relinquishment. Children become available in Haiti mainly due to the extreme environmental degradation in the country. Some of these conditions include lack of housing, proper nutrition, medical care and HIV. The children reside and receive care in a crèche. A crèche works with an adoption agency in completing the adoption.
The children range from infant to sixteen years of age. Most of them are healthy although there are some with medical needs. Many special needs children are waiting as well. Sibling groups are available.
