I did this and I selected a child and said it said I adopted it. Then no kid shows up. It's been around 24 sim hours. How long do I wait?

Re: Sims 4 Adoption


Are you using mods in your game ?


Can you post a screenshot of the menu you get ? Just upload to some third party site and post the link here.
