How old were your children when you adopted them?
Due in October? Join us in October 2011 Babies!
My now 9 year old son was placed with us at age 2 and adopted at age3. Our now 5 year old son was placed with us at age 3 and adopted at age 4.
My now 17 year was 15 when I got her and 16 when I adopted her. My other one who is the sibling to the first one is 15, I got her when she was 13 but she does not want to be adopted and so she is concidered a permanent placement.
Aiden was placed with us at the hospital, and we finalized when he was 6 months old. He is 18 months now.
DS was 15 months at placement, 3 years 2 weeks at finalization - we started visiting him 2-3 days a month at 8 months.
DD24 was about 10 when she came into our lives. She's not legally adopted because her other mom wasn't willing to raise her and also wasn't willing to allow her to have a family. Thankfully, we don't need paper - she's ours. We couldn't shake her off if we tried - lol - I was teasing her about that the other day. She's almost 25 now and is finally able to see humor there.
DD9 was 6 when she came home and 8 when we finalized.
DD2 came home from the hospital as a newborn and we finalized at 2 years 4 months.
Todd was 5 when I officially adopted him
