The oldest child we adopted had just turned 7 when she came to live with us. She is now 9 and we are thinking about adopting another 9 year old girl so she will have a sister closer to her age. She has been begging for one and we are excited about the possibility. I just wanted to hear some people's experiences with adopting children of that age or older and what it was like forming a bond or attachment issues you may have experienced. I know that each person's experience is different but would like to get some ideas of what to be prepared for. Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts and experiences with me.
