~Older Orphans

Until now, only about 20% of Ukrainian orphans over the age of 7 are adopted.  After the age of 10 that number drops even further.

Why is this age “too old” for an orphan, but considered still young for our own sons and daughters and nieces and nephews?  This is a question that must be asked.

Are they really “too old” or is that an excuse to cover for our unfounded fear?  And, if it is an unfounded fear, what must we do to rectify it?
