We have been married 10 years but were in our late 40s when we met and IVF didn't work for us, in fact I ended up in hospital with a pulmonary embolism. DH is American but we live in Ireland where foster kids can't be adopted and it is very difficult to be approved as foster or adoptive parents, takes years and the SWs apply an age limit of 42 for adoption even though it isn't required by law. I have a green card and we are both retired in our late 50s, thinking of moving to the US so that we can adopt a teenager. Has anyone got advice, opinions or experience that might help us to decide one way or another? I have a lot of friends and family here and it would be a big change for me even without the adoption.
