When one is looking to adopt a child would you accept any child or would you prefer an infant, toddler or older child? Can you state your reasons for your preferences, please. Would you adopt a child of a different ethnicity or race from your own? If yes, why...if no, why not? Thank you.Answer Question
Most people seeking adoption want an infant. They think an older child is "damaged" or has problems, which is unfortunate. there are hundred of thousands of kids in foster care that need real homes and someone to love them. As far as I think and believe, skin color DOES NOT make you a different race. We are ALL Human beings.

We have 2 two yr olds, and at the moment we have put a hold on our foster care license. We were offered another baby girl earlier this year and I was all set to say YES. Then we took the girls to a wedding that weekend and I realized we are just not ready for another one yet. We will begin the process again in May. I do have age stipulations...0-5yrs. If we would have been called about an older child first, then we would have taken any age. But with two little ones, I don't want to suddenly have a child that is years older than them in the house. I think it would be confusing to them. I don't have a preference for race, sex, etc.
