Am I crazy for wanting to adopt a tween boy

I am looking for a boy to adopt from foster care. Am I crazy? We are looking for (a) boy(s) from 1-12 but most of the boys I have interest in are the older ones.

  • no, you're not crazy. The older kids never get picked. We adopted our son when he was 9 and he's amazing. It only took a couple of weeks for him to adjust and become a part of our family. We never had any problems with him. I don't think the age matters, these kids need homes no matter how old they are.

  • I don't think so. And if you adopt a tween boy, I'm sure he won't think so either! Everyone deserves a family!
