My new husband and I have 3 teen girls between us 14,15, and 16. We go through phases where we think about adopting a girl around 1 to 3 years old. Our worry is that we are so close to our children being grown and having time to ourselves that we would not be the best parents to a small child. Then we think how much the both of us love being parents. We keep our nieces and nephews all the time because we miss the small children from our lives. My niece is 4 yrs old and my nephew is a 5 yr old boy. His nephew is a 2yr old boy and his nieces are 5 and 4 yrs. We also think about grandchildren and how old the child would be at the time the grandchildren start coming. We cannot have one on our own. He is 40 and I am not that far behind him. I am sure that some of you have started over this way. What are your suggestions and advice?
