Adoption Q&A: Are We Too Old to Adopt a Baby?

Question: “Are we too old to adopt a baby?”

Answer: If you’re wondering this same question as you begin your adoption research, you’re not alone. You may be comforted to know that the people who most often ask this question are in their late-30s to mid-40s. If you’ve hit adoption road blocks because of your age, keep exploring the options.
Sometimes age limitations depend on the type of adoption you want to pursue. In the US, couples of various ages can adopt successfully. Your home study provider will confirm if there are age requirements in your state as well. Birth mothers see value in younger AND older couples and it’s worth researching the options available to you in this season of your adoption dream.
