Dear Members of Parliament,
Dear Members of the Senate,
We would like to humbly request to hear from us regarding the proposed adoption law that is under your consideration to be voted into law.
We represent the adoptive parents who have had the honor in the past to adopt a child, are currently in the process of adopting a child or are wanting to adopt a child from Haiti.
We come from many different countries, France, United States, Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Argentina, Switzerland, Ireland and Great Britain.
We have a heart and love for the children of Haiti and consider it an honor to be able to raise a Haitian child as our own child, to provide that child with a loving home, a good education, medicalc are, and all his/her needs.
However, with the proposed adoption law as it is written currently,many families would be prevented from adopting because of the two-child-limit. We would like to humbly propose that the child-limit be increased to four children.
In order to adopt internationally, no matter what country we are from, we all have to go through similar steps to get adoption approval from our respective countries. One of those steps is an examination of our finanical records, visits to our homes, interviews with friends, family members or employers, etc. to ensure that the family can financially and emotionally provide for an additional child or children. If the family would not be able to provide such care to the additional child or children, then our respective governments would not give the prospective adoptive family permission to adopt a child or children from Haiti.
Reducing the number of children in the prospective adoptive family to two children would severely decrease the number of families that can adopt from Haiti. This child limit would prevent many abandoned or orphaned Haitian children from being adopted into loving homes.
We plead with you to reconsider this issue and humbly request for you to increase the number of children to four children.
Thank you and may God bless you.
