TOURS FOR FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN ADOPTED FROM ROMANIA

"RETURN TO THE ROOTS": PROGRAMS TAILORED TO EACH FAMILY'S NEEDS

 

Within the last 12 years there were more and more American and Canadian families who had previously adopted children from Romania that were now contacting us for private tours to the homeland of their children. So far we have organized and run tours for over 35 families with ties to Romania.

While we are the specialist when it comes to Romania private tours, we've very soon come to realize these tours involve a special preliminary preparation from both sides. 

Preparing such a trip is a very complex process. As we are based in Romania, we are happy to help with any research pertaining to pre planning: from finding the natural parents to identifing the actual places related to both the child and the adoption process. We then go through extensive and detailed trip planning, to make sure the goal of your trip is achieved, and more.......

We thouroughly understand the deep significance of such a journey. To the adopted children it gives them a sense of identity, provides ownership of their own stories and strenghtens family bonds. While for the parents it is the accomplishment of the desire to offer their children what they have been thinking of for many years, that is the opportunity to visit their home country and get a sense of belonging.

A homeland journey is rewarding, although complex. Based on our deep knowledge of Romania, our long time established experience and desire to offer the best, we invite you to work with us for a memorable trip.
