IS Aruba REALLY Safe?

Let's do a quick comparison of Aruba and the British Virgin Islands, the richest island in the Caribbean. Do I have a beef with the British Virgin Islands? Absolutely not, we had a wonderful day there in 2004 and look forward to another one the end of this year.

Why the BVI'S then? The British Virgin Island's with one of the highest GDP'S per capita in the world of $38,500 ranks #12 in the world. The United States Ranks #9.

Where to Begin?

People have asked us why dh and I did not go to Aruba last year. Very interesting story actually. In the late part of 2003 we decided that we would like to become parents through adoption.

We already had a few "irons in the fire" so to speak, when we last visited Aruba in June 2004. Domestic adoption is much less expensive than International adoptions, but nonetheless, enough red tape enough to go around the world.
