Does anyone have any insights into "ideal" age gaps between adopted children? Of course I know there is no true ideal age gap.   I have read some articles about issues that come up with adopting kids older than your children.  I am mainly concerned with attachment issues for children adopted too close together.  Any research? personal stories?


I am trying to plan ahead.  My current FS is 6 months with adoption likely by 18-20 mo.  I am already tired of the revolving door of social workers, etc.   I feel like I want to push for a second placement but not to the detriment of my current FS.
