MLJ Adoptions Has Been Approved To Do Adoptions In Haiti


MLJ Adoptions, Inc. is thrilled to announce that they are one of nineteen agencies that has been approved to work in Haiti to do adoptions! We will be opening our new pilot program in Haiti today! Haiti is now a Hague country and new program highlights will be coming in the very near future. We look forward to finding families for the beautiful children of Haiti along with our partner Giving Hope Rescue Missions in Haiti!

  • Married couples and single women
  • Couples must be married for at least 10 years.
  • One parent should be 35 years or older.
  • Parents must be a minimum of 18 years older than the adoptive child.
  • No biological children in the current marriage. Families with biological children can apply for special waiver by the president.
  • Adopted children in current or former marriage are accepted as well as children from a previous marriage.
  • Previously divorced accepted


Who Are the Children in Haiti that need Adoption?
  • Infants to 12 years old
  • Sibling groups and twins available.
  • Unrelated children can be adopted at the same time.
  • Children with Special Needs/HIV

Children are considered healthy although some may have minor to correctable conditions.

While our agency will accept applications, this is a pilot program and many unknowns are still prevalent. Submission of your application and/or initial payment in no way guarantee you a successful adoption, your approval to adopt or any details regarding the process. Haitian adoption process is still evolving. However, it is a Hague process and Haiti and the US State Department have been extremely invested in the transition and creation of a stable and ethical Hague Adoption process in Haiti. MLJ Adoptions will provide additional information and requirements in the coming days/weeks/months. Please be sure to read our Agreement closely and understand your financial risks and additional risks prior to moving forward with MLJ Adoptions.
