When we began our last adoption we requested to adopt a daughter between the ages of 6-8. All of our previously adopted children had been 12-24 months old when they came home. Our oldest birth daughter had been asking for a sister her age. When we received our referral it was obvious to us the girl in the photo was much older than the 7 years they had put as her age. However, she was a child needing a family and we were a family wanting a child. After she came home and we had a bone scan done we found out she was at least 10-11 years old. My guess is she is 12-13 years old. Anyway, we gave her a birth date making her 10 years old.
So how does our birth daughter feel about having an older sister?
