If someone were to adopt a kid who was older than their own do you think it would screw things up? What are your thoughts about this? I read a book about this once and I thought it would be an interesting topic to discuss.

I think it would depend on how much of an alpha child your current oldest child is and how many issues you would need to work through with the child you are adopting.If you have a child that is one of those I am in charge I am the oldest I am second only to mom and you adopted a child older than them you are not only changing their family life but their sense of self. If your oldest is not one to want to take charge and claim that spot all the time than it may be easier.
