I am a stay-at-home mom with a 19 month old daughter. My husband and I are looking to adopt a boy that is a little bit older than our daughter. My husband's reasoning is so she will have an older brother to protect her. I am adopted myself. My grandparents adopted me and I've always wanted to return the favor to a child someday. I grew up in a house full of girls so I am wondering if adopted an older boy would be the right choice and are there any conflictes between the biological child and the adopted child?
