Older Child Adoption
Birth order disruption?
I have two kids, one will be 9 next month, one is 4. My daughter is the older child, she talks to me about her dream of having a sister to share a bedroom with (ideal world right?
The children that I feel a pull to are the older ones, I’ve looked through profiles of kids that are aged 7-16…a small concern pops up, my daughter is the oldest in the family, if we were to adopt a child older than her, could this cause an issue?
Has anyone adopted a child(ren) older than their oldest biological child?
My other concern is that I am only 31, I am aware of the fact that if I were to have a child that was closer to 16, that it could cause a bit of an issue when it comes to being viewed the “parent” not as a “friend”...
These are just a few of the concerns I have when thinking about and researching adoption.
