Soooo

Just out of curiosity I was looking into adoption from Haiti, my uncle lives there. Their requirements are ridiculous thousands of kids without a family and you can't be single,and have to be married for ten years,but you can't be over 53, can't have any biological children, can't have so much as a speeding ticket, the child you are adopting has to be at least 19 years younger than you, and then they want up to $30,000 just to bring the kid home to a loving family. Plus you pay for passports, plane tickets, hotel rooms, etc. Seems kinda crazy. ​

    I'm for sure going to keep looking, I think adopting a toddler would be so cool. Giving someone something they've never had would be a great feeling.

    My uncle lives there and when the earthquake happened it destroyed his house, and they took his kids from him because of a natural cause ruining his house, he still has yet to get them back. I know I can't get them, my dads adopting them, but maybe I can stop the same thing from happening to another kid.

        Holy cow, what?! Some of those strictures seem kinda idiotic, in my opinion. Keep looking! I know someone adopted on a sliding scale for the money, so paid NOWHERE near that amount. Options are out there!
