Okay here it goes: My husband and I have been unable to have another child biologically. We decided we wanted to adopt a child younger than our son who is 4 and autistic. Well I found a little boy who is almost 5 and autistic and fell a little in love. But I do have reservations. He is older than my child and not sure how my son would do with not only having a new sibling, but no loger being the oldest. My next reservation may sound bad, but I try to be realistic. My son is a high functioning autistic. The boy I am thinking about adopting is non-verbal, so I assume not as high functioning as my son, and his window for making positive strides is closing. I would really like to hear what you guys think, maybe I will hear some new perspectives.
