Change unfair adoption law age limit

Many couples and single parents in the USA want to adopt teen orphans. Orphanages worldwide have millions of teen orphans ready to be adopted. The USA adoption law does not allow adoptions past the age of 16 We believe this law to be unfair. Many orphans when they reach the age of 18 are given a little money and they are sent to the streets,into an unknown world, unprepared and untrained. They fall into a world of drugs, depression, prostitution and suicide. Many would be saved, if parents could adopt them. Please sign our petition, so we can tell the U.S. Congress that the law needs to be change, so oprhans up to 20 years old can be adopted by American families. Thank you!
