With 7 kids it hasn't made any sense for me to work, because of the daycare costs and the appointments and sick days that come along with 7 kids.

We have always thought that someday we would move to Tennessee. Since we adopted from foster care, moving has come to the forefront again. The children's biological families keep showing up at the school and trying to pass information to the kids through other kids. This causes a lot of anxiety for the kids, who are afraid that the bios will kidnap them.

I'm getting frustrated. It seems like you either live in the city, or a suburb of the city, or you live in the middle of nowhere. Our kids are used to going outside and playing daily. I have a clothesline outside. My son has a pet pot belly pig, we have chickens, dogs and we raise a cow or some pigs usually every year for the meat. I need a location that will still allow that. We're not interested in areas that have "rules" about what you can and can't do in your yard.

Thank you for all of your help.

Hik is right. There is farmland just outside city limits with little restrictions. Sometimes I am amazed that you can go two blocks and be surrounded by farms, cattle, horses, goats, etc. go back two blocks and be almost in the middle of town.

The most important thing is to find a job first. Many of our manufacturing jobs have crossed the border. Finding what you want for $200K may take some searching. I bought my place 5 yrs ago before the housing disaster for $125K a fixer uper house w/32 acres. Keep in mind also that often rural areas may not have water and sewer or natural gas lines, garbage pickup or cable and internet connections arent as fast.
