    You do understand a teenager can be somebody who is two years younger than you, right? Sometimes 20 year olds are considered teenagers.

    Be more specific please.

    Yes.

    Even if today is your 18th birthday, you can adopt a teenage boy.

    Anyone who is an adult can adopt anyone who is a minor.

    • An 18 year old is a teenager, not an adult. Clues in the word.

    Somehow, your question just seems so wrong.

    Not usually. 21 year olds are not usually in a position to pay the costs involved, have adequate housing and income, and would not be looked upon as mature enough to handle a teenager.

    Does anyone else want more background info on this?

    This sometimes happens when parents die and one sibling adopts the other, but outside of that limited scenario it's virtually unheard of.
