Gifts from Above...& Down the Road

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! We still have a long way to go, but every gift we receive helps immensely. If anyone has any questions regarding this adoption we are happy to talk with you about it. I think the more people that learn about the process the better (and trust me, it is a PROCESS!). Blessings for your day!

Hi Stephanie:

Are you a member of the chances 4 children adoptive family forum? I am, and I just posted a message there about whether the 1974 adoption law that Haiti has on the books is going to be a problem for us, since we don't meet the requirements. According to the law, you have to have been married for 10 years and have no biological children and one spouse must be at least 35. Well, I've been married 8 years, my spouse is 34 and I'm 30 and we have 2 bio kids. Kathi of Chances 4 Children said this law will probably be enforced against parents whose files aren't in IBESR by this month (she said Oct 1 but perhaps she meant Nov 1)? I'm working with the Adoption Guides agency, and I've just emailed to ask their opinion. Have you heard anything? Will you ask your agency and get back to me? I'm more than a bit worried. Our homestudy will be complete this month, but because of the things that have to happen on the Haiti side, we won't be in IBESR this month -- likely next month or early December.

Feel free to email me directly at
