Hi. I read this board when I have time. Haven't been around in awhile. I am not currently adopting but just thinking about it down the road. I think I'd like to do a domestic adoption of a toddler.

But what I am wondering (just curious about rules) is if you can adopt an infant internationally even though you can have your own bio's? I know that you can't adopt infants domestically if you can have your own bio's. just wondering if the same rule applies internationally?

I think for most countries the answer is yes. When China first opened up to international adoption, they only allowed families who were childless to adopt, but they changed that several years ago. And I know many families with biological children who have adopted infants domestically, as well.

I will second what the others have said - it depends on the country. Several countries that we have looked at have required a doc's note saying that you were infertile. There are limitations with all countries on number of children currently in the home. We are adopting from Korea and, I believe, you cannot have more than 4 children in the home.
