This might be too general of a question since it is difficult to group them. Let me start at the beginning. My husband and I are considering adopting an eleven year old girl. Before I contact social services about her, I want to do a little research about eleven year olds. Can you tell me what your eleven year old is like? What are they into? I realize this child will come with some issues. We will deal with those. I want to know about the normal issues parents are dealing with concerning their preteen. Any info would help.
