"Older Child": A Matter of Perspective

Our request to the Kyrgyz government is for a female child under 3 years old. We hope they view us favorably and grant our request. We are aware that very few people request a child this old, and we will therefore be near the top of the "older child list". Most families adopting from Kyrgyzstan are hoping to adopt infants. Some referrals are so young that PAPs cannot go to court to adopt them because they must be 3 months old.

Wow! We too found it odd at our adoption group picnic that older child included anyone wanting to adopt something other than a newborn! Still tracking and praying for your journey! God Bless!
