HAITI ADOPTION PROGRAM

         While Haitian birth mothers love their children, adoption is often the only option for their children to survive.  Poverty has devastated Haiti and forced many overflowing orphanages to turn needy children away.

         In this country 80% of the population lives in abject poverty, and natural disasters frequently sweep the nation.
