Hello there. I am 49 and my husband is 53. We were blessed with 2 biological children who are now 29 and 26 years of age. Our third child is adopted and is 14 years old. We have always loved and enjoyed children and thought that our family was complete, yet the yearning to adopt another child was always there for me. Now we have been given the opportunity to adopt a newborn and I sit here with such mixed feelings. Can we do this again?Are we too old?Starting over?What is fair? This is probably the hardest decision we have had to make. Would be nice to get some input from other older/younger parents out there.
