Posted by Lifetime Adoption on Jan 22, 2015 4:30:04 PM

Thinking About Adopting an Older Child?

Here at Lifetime Adoption, an older child adoption is defined as the adoption of any child over the age of one. Adopting an older child can have its own blessings and its own challenges because every older child comes with a past.
