This video will make you sad. This video will make you grateful for the computer or smartphone you are currently watching. Hopefully, this video will help you consider adopting an older child.

Older child adoptions just aren’t as popular. Couples tend to love the attraction (which is totally understandable) of a baby or toddler. Older children can present harder work when it comes to bonding.

But older children need families too. They age out of the system at 18 and that is the end of their care. No child should be left without a family. It isn’t right for a child to go their whole life never knowing what true love and stability is.
