Is it a good idea to adopt a child from another country as my husband and I are planning to relocate?

Many couples adopt children from other countries even if they’re not relocating, but certainly if you are planning an international move, then you may want to consider adopting a child that’s born in the country you plan on living in. Remember that when you adopt a child in a foreign country, they will not automatically gain U.S. citizen status. According to the State Department, children adopted abroad automatically acquire U.S. citizenship if the following are true: “At least one of the child's parents is a U.S. citizen; the child is under 18; the child lives in the legal and physical custody of the American citizen parent; the child is admitted into the United States as an immigrant for lawful permanent residence; and the adoption is final.”
