Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Adoption on the Road

Just a question. My husband to be and I are planning to have more children. But I may not be able to have anymore do to complications with my last pregancy. I was just wondering if anyone had ever adopted while on the road full time. and if it was possible? I also think we are going to try going out of the country to adopt. I was just curious if anyone has expirience with this? and if it is possible when you don't have a permanant home. thanks.

Well, I don't really have an answer for you, but we've had folks at church that adopted some of their children.  They have had to "jump through hoops" to get a child adopted.  It seems the adoption services are so particular about what kind of family and lifestyle the children will have in their environment.

That said, I'm not sure any of them would appreciate someone "who appeared to be a gypsy."  I'm not saying that you wouldn't be good parents and providers, but the services that adopt might not like the environment where children's services, doctors and hospitals, etc. weren't readily available at almost all times.

I have no idea what foreign adoption requirements are, so I won't even touch on that one.  However, you might look into different adoption services to see what environment and family it is that they would require for the child.  That suggestion is applied to both foreign and domestic situations.

Sorry that I can't give definitive answers to you.  I sincerely hope that if you want to adopt a child, that it be an unstressful process for you.
