I think it varies on state and also what you are adopting, a child versus a baby. I know there are a lot of older kids in the system so I bet they are more lenient on ages for them. Babies maybe not but I think it's ageisn to not let people adopt after a certain age.

I agree with Wendy. I don't count on kids, but I love them and I would make a terrific mother.

Prayerfully considering decisions in our lives is not a cop out, it's a way of life.

Ageism? I'm not so sure. I know that nothing in life is certain but an older adoptive parent is not likely to be around and in the child's life for as long as a younger parent would be. What a tragedy for a child to lose two sets of parents before the child reaches adulthood.


Taking care of children at an older age can be a big challenge, too. My youngest three were born when I was 39, 44, and 47. While I can't imagine life without them and I would willingly suffer anything for them, having children when you're older is hard on the body whether they're biological or adopted.
