An adult can definitely adopt an adult. This can prove to be one of the easiest adoptions. Simply because the adult being adopted would need no permission from his or her biological parents as long as he is over the age of 18. If that adult is married, is the only permission needed. The spouse will need to give his/her permission for you to be adopted. I have heard of several forms of adoption but adult adoption I've heard to be the easiest.

Adult adoption varies from state to state, but many states allow adult adoption. Check with your state Department of Children and Families and see if they have guidelines or visit the family court to see if there is a form for such a petition. If possible, you should consult with an attorney who specializes in family and domestic law, and adoption.

There's no simple answer to that. For the adopted children, homes are just about always better than orphanages. And women still do get injured through pregnancy or birth. If you well and truly knew that would happen to you, then adoption would be better. And sometimes there are hereditary diseases and conditions which a responsible adult would prefer not to pass on to their children, again making adoption a sensible option. OTOH, many adopted kids go through a tough period in their (late) teens, struggling with their identity, why they were adopted, what life would have been it they'd stayed with their "real" parents, and things like that.

It will depend on the laws in your location. There are places where adult adoption is common. It often has to do with inheritance rights.

Yes, adults can be adopted. You will need to consult a lawyer but it is fairly common. HOWEVER, the 19-year-old is an adult so they cannot be adopted "single sided," that is, without their consent. (Note that a non-US-citizen 19-year-old cannot come into the US and become a citizen through adoption the way a younger child could.)
