In a few years once we're out of the military and settled some place final, we want to adopt. We have on daughter now and another baby on the way. But, we always felt like it was something that we needed to do was to provide a home to a child or two that didnt' have parents of their own to take them in. So, eventually we want to adopt older kids, like between 3 and 9ish, even take in a pair of siblings or something. But, when we do start the process what are some questions I should ask the adoption agency? What are some things to look for that indicate a decent agency or signs to look for that make you not want to use that agency. Thanks!

>>> Adoption agencies do not handle adoption of older children. <<<
Yes they do, if they are contracted with the state to do so. It would be one of first questions I'd ask though.

.....remark about "purchasing" babies. We cannot purchase human beings.....
Really? well try getting a "dream" baby without paying money to a third party to make it happen. Just because it's whitewashed calling it a "service fee" and the money is paid in a one-lump sum or nickeled and dimmed a little at a time doesn't make the reality of hands exchanging money for a baby any less the human-flesh trade transaction that it is.
