A response from our Senator

It is nice to know that someone has heard our voice in the matter of the Haitian Children And Families Initiative. Now, we are hoping for action if this legislation comes before the Senate. Below is a response from Senator Sherrod Brown after contacting his office for support . Thank you Senator !

Dear Christopher:( Adam)

Thank you for getting in touch with me regarding proposed adoption legislation in Haiti.

The Haitian legislature is considering draft legislative proposals that would strengthen the regulation of both intercountry and domestic adoptions. While Haiti is not currently party to the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption, this legislation is an important move in that direction.

I share your concern that proper protocol and procedures must be followed to ensure an efficient and safe adoption process for children and parents. I will continue to monitor this situation and should legislation regarding this issue come before the Senate, I will certainly keep your views in mind.

Thank you again for getting in touch with me.
