Wow.. WHO CARES that such a child is
is older??? Isnt the fact that the
kid has no parrent who wants her
or him enough reason to let the
child have a chance for some
loving family to adopt?? Is it a
crime that a parent just wasnt
born with or taught skills in
parenting? DONT CHANGE THIS LAW!
In fact, it should be world-wide!
As an adopted person, i know about
this stuff....
