I just read this statement on a yahoo adoption web group about someone saying that maybe she was to old to adopt,
"If I adopt this year, when my daughter graduates high school, I'll be 60.
If I don't adopt, in 18 years I'll be 60 anyway."..., I thought this was so funny and so true! I will also be 60 years old when Sarah turns 18 years old. There are plenty of grandmothers in the US raising their own grand children. I know by age I will be an old mom. Still, I think it is far better to have a mom that is older, then no mom at all! My kids manage to keep me young!
