Adoption: Parent Age Limit?

This post was submitted by Senorita in The Mommy Club group.

I have been married for a couple of years and I am in my early thirties. And like any couple, we have talked about what we want children-wise. We have both decided that in a few years, we would have one child and then a couple years after that adopt another. I definitely want to experience being pregnant and having a baby but after talking to some of my friends many of them tell me it is hard to adopt children once you are in your late thirties! I was wondering if anyone had adopted a child and knew about any age limits for the parents. I don't want to miss out on an opportunity to help a child in need because the system thinks we are too old.

I don't think there is an age limit to when a person can adopt a child. As long as you're mentally there and physically capable of handling a child, it shouldn't matter how old you are!

If adopting internationally, there are very often age limits, but those vary by country and by the age of the child one would want to adopt. Domestically, some agencies have limits, but it isn't as often.

I don't think there's a limit... but it is hard to adopt. Try talking with someone at your local adoption agency and see what they say.
