Waiting to Adopt

Still Single and 40 yet wants a baby

Hi everyone,

As single person 40 years old contemplating private adoption, please share with me what is the common biggest problems, challenges or top 2 frustrations you have in your adoption journey ?

Thank you so much for sharing..



not quite the same situation, because I adopted from foster care, but the waiting is just so hard. waiting for clearances to come through, waiting for the homestudy to be done, then the painful wait to be matched. The waiting is hard for everyone, but I think its a little worse when you are older because you know you aren’t getting any younger, and the more months and years that drag on, the older you are getting! then once my kids finally came home it is a little weird because a lot of people with kids my age are so much younger than I am. at the school groups, dance classes, so many younger moms. a lot of my siblings and friends started their families early; my younger sisters’ kids are teenagers, and here I am almost 40 with a toddler. not really a problem, just weird.  Good luck in your journey!
