The process of adopting a child
can be a difficult one, even for people who come from backgrounds that society finds to be more socially acceptable. But for a woman who is a practicing polygamist,
the process can be next to impossible.
However, she faces a number of obstacles. Namely, her polygamist lifestyle, which leads to many adoption agencies rejecting her inquiries outright.
Also, since polygamy is illegal, Brady is only married, by law, to his first wife Paulie. This means Rhonda is, technically a single mother.
"Being a single mother is an additional complication with this whole adoption process," Rhonda laments, as she calls agency after agency looking for someone to hear her out.
But Rhonda isn't going to let rejection deter her in her goal to adopt.
