Haiti is a beautiful island country surrounded by clear ocean water. Most tourists see the sandy beaches and breathtaking ocean views. They visit sites and eat Haitian food. They feel the vibrance of this small country. Yet Haiti is among the poorest nations in the western hemisphere, with nearly 80% of the population living in extreme poverty.

Either abandoned or relinquished, over 3,200 children have been adopted from Haiti since 1999.
