An adoptive parent should be medically fit and financially able to care for a child. A person wishing to adopt a child must be at least 21 years old.
There is no legal upper age limit for parents but most adoptive agencies set their own benchmarks with regard to age. For a child who is less than a year old, the adoptive parents can have a maximum combined age of 90 years.
Also, neither parent must be older than 45 years.
