As one of the most poverty-stricken countries in the world, Haiti has an overwhelming need for adoptive parents. In fact, roughly 10,000 children live on the streets in Haiti, with an estimated 200,000 in orphanages. Still, the adoption process is often a longer one when compared to other countries, says Adoption.com. Infants through teens need homes, including sibling groups and those with special needs. Travel may be required.
