Phred you crack me up! China will allow a person who is 65 to adopt an orphan but it has to be an older child. There are so very many orphans in China about to "age out" meaning hit 14 and be unavailable for adoption. Once they age out and are an unregistered birth due being orphans...their future is pretty dim.
Wish I could help more kids find parents. After being in China, seeing the poverty and the orphanages...it is really unimaginable. Worse than I ever thought it would be...you can't even brush your teeth with tap water in the 5 star hotels! I just wanted to grab my daughter and get her out of there.
