In her answer to last week’s Tuesday Topic, Nancy, writer of Ordinary Miracles and the Crazy 8 asked a great question that seemed to flow right into a new topic. This is what she said:
My only hesitation on waiting to adopt again is that I’m getting old! I’ll be 42 soon, and although that’s not ancient, I realize that the day will come when it just isn’t fair to a child to be adopted by senior parents. I’d love to have a discussion (from both those who have adopted and those who haven’t) about when is too old to adopt/what age child! I wrestle with this everyday and hope this factor doesn’t make me jump into adoption prematurely.
What do you think? What is too old? How about for adopting waiting children? What about babies?
Leave your answer as a comment and I will share it next Tuesday, February 23rd.
I look forward to hearing what you have to say.
