Can you adopt if you already have two other children?

Yes, you may adopt if you already have two children. In fact, many birthparents prefer to place with families that already have children because it is the only way to be sure in an adoption that the child will have siblings.

At the IAC about one third of our placements are with families that already have children. Families with children do not have a longer wait for placement than families without children. For more information please see our statistics on wait times in adoption.
