92-year-old adopts 76-year-old woman
Turns out it's never too late to become a mother. A 92-year-old Dallas woman has officially adopted a 76-year-old daughter. Muriel Clayton was once just the elder cousin of Mary Smith, bt after a family tragedy nearly six decades ago, Clayton took Smith in as one of her own children.
If you thought you could only adopt children, you'd be mistaken. According to Legal Zoom, adoption is the same legal process whether the individual is a child or an adult -- which is why back in 2011, one family decided to adopt a grown man.
Charee Godwin-Smith and her husband adopted Billy, a marine aviation operations specialist. He had been a fixture in their home since the death of his mother when he was just 15, but in his early twenties Billy managed to get officially adopted into the Smith family. So no matter what your age, you're never too old to find your perfect family.
