    I think I read somewhere that it was difficult to get books for young ones in English. And since Dutch, English, Spanish & Papiamento are taught it may be nice, but I would reach out to the orphanage you are dealing with and ask directly - I could be wrong.

    This is from a thread back in August 2012:

    I'm very interested in helping the orphanage while in Aruba this March. Thanks for the info. Out of curiosity, I imagine the ultimate goal is adoption. Are Americans able to adopt from Aruba? Has anyone done this? Let me know if you have info.

    Thanks Andrea! I'm not very good at keeping up most of the year, and then as spring break approaches I become obsessed and check in 10 times a day! I would really appreciate any information. My husband and I have always said we would possibly adopt a 4th child or foster. Doing research on both options.

    When I was working as a nurse in a long term nursing home for kids... I became a "legal" parent for one. A very very special boy.... neglected.. near drowning
    and semi veggie state (but he was very aware of my presence)
    He eventually earned his "wings" and I promise him right before that I will take him with me... and will keep him till I go. We will go together to a very special place. Yes, he sits in my family room watching over me now.


    My husband and I have taught the kids the value of life. We have gone to a few orphanages till bring special things. Yes chocolate was one. Mainly school supplies
    Note books, pens, and etc.

    at least 4, but i am sure that there are more, adoptive parents are forum members.
    it is not my place to give the names, but maybe they will post some thoughts.
