Adopting from Haiti

**Please note: if you are asking to join this group, you will receive a message from one of the admins asking for your reason for interest in joining. Please check your others message folder and respond. You will not be added until you do so.**

This group is for families who are on the journey of adopting from Haiti. You may be just startig, already in the process or who have recently completed the process of adopting from Haiti.

The primary purpose of this group is to share information, offer encouragement and pray for one another. This is a place for us to come together, support and lift each other up. We are HUGE believers in the power of prayer and fasting and I think when we come together in Jesus' name, GOD will show up in a huge way.

This group is intended to be an encouraging place. Obviously information can sometimes be confusing so questions are encouraged. However, if, at any point, the conversation turns into personal attack, bullying or slander, the group admins have the discretion to remove the post and or remove a member without notice until the issue is resolved.

*** Privacy is very important among the group we ask that you please keep other people's information private within in the group unless you have permission to share it.

We also have a blog to help organize all the great info that gets shared on here and buried in time:http://ourhaitiadoptions.blogspot.com/

I just wanted to let you know that due to privacy or any other reason, if you have a question that you don't want to post under your name you can PM one of the group admins Shasta Mott Grimes, Karena Holder Price, Charity Remington, Wendy Britmom, Ellie Puckett, Jennifer Capozzi, and Kimberly Christian and we will be happy to post for you and keep it confidential. This has helped a lot of people get answers they are not getting from their attorneys, agencies, and orphanage directors/facilitators.

Also, we are hoping to see a LOT more families uniting and kids going home. As you start the "printing" of the passport/visa stage there is a new group (only for those in that stage and beyond) where you can really discuss the issues and joys faced with after the homecoming. You are still welcome to have any of those discussions here and ask questions here but that page will be focused on those topics while this one is more focused on the adoption process. If you want to get added to that page you can contact Michelle Eisler or Denise Naus to be added or go to to the group and request to be added:https://www.facebook.com/groups/afterthewaithaiti/


Thank you all for being a part of this group. We hope that this group will help you get through this adventure of adoptioning from Haiti! :)
