Hi, I am joining this group in hopes of some advice or stories that will help us make a better decision. My husband and I have 1 daughter, Kadyn Star, who we adopted at birth through a domestic adoption. Kadyn is biracial. She is now 4.5 years old and dying for a sibling. We would love to add another to our family but unsure how we can afford another domestic adoption. We have been looking at Minnesota's Waiting Children program and beginning to take the courses and work with an agency to start this process. We would love to have a child who is younger than Kadyn but it does not sound like that is possible with this program. Most likely the child we would get would be of school age (6-18yrs.). I am wondering if any of you have adopted an older child with a younger one already in the home. How did it go? Our daughter is still pretty young and not sure she would take too long to adjust but curious if others have done this.
Thanks for reading and sharing.
