For some of us, starting a family in mid 40's or starting over again can be a lonely and challenging road. Some support you, others say "why don't you focus on this time in your life to YOU". Well, after raising two daughters (biological), my new husband and I decided to adopt a newborn at 45 years old. That was in 2002. It has been wonderful, yet with challenges much different than when I was a much younger mom. Would love to hear from those who have also adopted later in life!
