Do I have a chance to adopt a baby if older?

2 doctors agree
In brief: Yes
Arbitrary age for the "older" parent attempting to adopt is over 40yrs old.
In the US there is more competition for adoption with younger parents for a pregnant woman on her own who will consider placing their child with you. Russia, China, Korea and India are open to adoptions for older parents. Adopters who are flexible with the age of the child will receive quicker placement. Being healthy.
