Older Adoption - Beyond 18

Older Adoption - Beyond 18

We spend a significant amount of time talking about the 18,000+ youth that 'age-out' of foster care each year, but what exactly does that mean? Does the fact that turning 18 erase the opportunity to find their forever family? No!

You'll want to tune in as we visit with Derrick Riggins an adult adoptee who aged-out of the system and was adopted at age 25 joins us with his Mom, Susan Stockham an adoption attorney who specializes in adoption and surrogacy talk about older adoption - beyond age 18.

Derrick shares some important insights about the lack of resources and mentors for this group of youth who age out of the system. Susan shares with us that there is no age-limit on adoption - that she has helped many families come together even over 50!

Don't miss it - you'll be inspired and hopefully motivated to go out in your own community to help a youth seeking the most basic kind of support.
