WHY OLDER CHILD ADOPTION?

The question has been asked of us - why would a teenager want to be adopted?  The answer - because you are never too old to need a parent.  Never too old to need support.  Never too old to feel like you belong.  The concept of older child adoption can be a daunting one.  Many people have questions, fears and misconceptions about what the experience is like.  Today there are over 100,000 older children that are waiting for adoptive families in our US foster care system.  The need is great.  Please take a few minutes to watch the video below to hear from “real” people that understand the need for and journey of older child adoption.
