I've been reading about adoption lately, and I just finished Parenting the Hurt child by Gregory Keck which would really answer your question about families that make it work. While older children with difficult pasts isn't a group we are looking at adopting due the needs of the children in our family already, I found his book very interesting. I especially liked when he explained that saying teenagers are too old to adopt is like saying you're too old for family. He said we all spend far more years having family after we become adults than we do as children and family never ceases to be important.

Also, I don't know if you listen to podcasts, but I've listened to many from the Creating A Family website. Here is the section on older child adoption. http://www.creatingafamily.org/adoption-resources/older-child-adoption.html
