Why would your window on adoption be closing at such a young age?  Many people do it into their 40’s or 50’s.  Nothing wrong with that either. 

But as I didn’t have children until later in life, I do know exactly how you feel.  I never let on that I was feeling left out and tried to just fake it, and some of the time it worked, but most of all I was able to not rain on anyone’s parade so to speak.  It was not easy though.

I’m sorry, bee. You have every right to your feelings. And while I’m not saying adoption is a breeze, you are no where near the cut-off age. In fact, there really is no cut-off age. My Fiance and I are thinking about it now at ages 44 and 45. I feel in the prime of life and expect to be completely eligible despite my age and cancer history (I know several others with my demgraphics and health history who were able to adopt). Don’t despair, OP. You have options.
