According the the U.S. Department of State Web site, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and the Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs are looking for ways to speed up the adoption process for those who already have pending adoptions. These are cases where the Haitian government has already issued a final adoption decree or granted custody to the U.S. adoptive parents. The State Department is still working with Homeland Security to see how to best handle pending Haiti adoptions.Updated: April 29, 2010
Applications for Adoption Being Accepted
The IBESR, Haiti's adoption authority, announced that they are now accepting new adoption applications for Haitian children who were either documented as orphans before January 12, 2010, or who have been since relinquished by their parents or guardians since the earthquake. The U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince has also resumed normal visa processing.Updated January 18, 2010
