***July 2016 UPDATE: We are currently accepting applications for Haiti Relative Adoption Help Haiti Relative Adoptions Happen! ***

*** August 2016 UPDATE: 5 families should be home with their children this summer/fall. There were 5 official referrals were issued to EAC families by IBESR in 2016.

We can’t do it without your help!

We need your help! European Adoption Consultants has a mission to reunite 10 children with their families through relative adoption this year. We are raising money for a grant program to help families afford to rescue these relatives and bring them to the United States. Our goal is to raise $100,000. Our Haitian staff would love to help unite Haitian families!

If you, or someone you know, would like to participate in this project, please contact Holly for more information: 1-866-586-5656 or email h.russell@eaci.com
