It's hard for an older child to get adopted. People want these impressionable babies that they tell the usual lie to, which ALWAYS leads to difficulty later on.

I was adopted at 7. I knew exactly what was going on and I didn't have a huge-ass "you lied to me!" tantrum. It's all good.

OMG as a step mom to a kid with anger issues, this rings true.  When the kid and I met, it was perfection.  I didn't go thru labor to bring him into this world, but he may as well have come from me as we look alike, think alike and have about the same emotional "temperature".  His dad was initially baffled and is now thankful.  And the anger BS?  Mostly gone away.  Kid's on the honor roll and not beating up other kids/mouthing off to teachers.  Big transition in 2 short years-he and I still butt heads, but I think it's good and not a bad thing; he needs someone to confront and also talk to and cry to from time to time and I guess I'm it.  His bio mom seemed to pour gas on the fire and make him more angry.  Glad she's 1K miles away now.

/wicked stepmother, don't mess with my kid

i worked with a woman who tried to adopt an older boy. she and her husband both thought they could make it work but the kid had A LOT of resentment and it seemed no matter that the (new) parents or (new) sisters did it wasn't enough.

so he was "proved right" when his bad behavior got him thrown out. a lose lose for all. it looks like this may work out better. one can hope so at least.
