While one's parents are still living, it is traditional not to utter Kaddish for others. Adopted children are encouraged, but not compelled, to say Kaddish for their adopted parents. Only if a minyan (religious quorum) is present at a public prayer service may the Kaddish be performed. Otherwise, it must be said privately.
Kaddish is the most important word in Judaism. It means "consolation" or "comfort". Its use in mourning rituals shows that it was also seen as a form of consolation for the dead. Today, many use it as a prayer for friends and family members who have died.
After the death of a loved one, it is customary to recite Kaddish daily for three months. This is important because it shows that you are thinking about your loss and trying to find comfort in religion.
If your parents are alive but in poor health, you may want to say Kaddish for them too. This is a good opportunity to ask God to restore their health so they can enjoy better days together again.
It is possible to say Kaddish even if your parents are alive because it is a religious obligation for anyone who has reached puberty. Your saying Kaddish shows that you are thinking about your family members who have died. This is a good thing because it reminds God that you need him even after someone has died.
It is up to the family, in consultation with the rabbi, to determine if the youngster is old enough to recite Kaddish during services. It is quite acceptable, if not religiously required, for a son to say Kaddish for a foster parent, especially if he has been reared by that parent for many years. The same is true for a young person who has been adopted; he or she can choose to say Kaddish at any point after adoption.
A son must be at least 13 years old to say Kaddish. However, many families choose to wait until their children are much older before having them say it during prayer services. The age of decision depends on the family and its values, but at least 14 years of age is recommended as an adequate time frame to allow for mature consideration.
Kaddish is said by a man for his father and by a woman for her husband. But since the death of a child is considered a joint tragedy, the father or mother will say it for each other as well. If a wife says Kaddish for her husband, they are living together without being married. In this case, she is saying Kaddish for another man's soul, which is inappropriate. The only exception is if the husband is still alive. Then, the wife could say Kaddish for him too.
Parents should explain Kaddish to their children.

Willie and Korie Robertson, who had previously hinted at plans to extend their family, revealed on Sunday that they were adopting another child. Willie and Korie have five children: biological children John Luke, Sadie, and Bella, an adoptive son, Will, and a foster daughter, Rebecca. The family lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
Korie announced the news on her blog. She wrote that she was "so excited" to tell everyone that they will be adding one more to their family -- something she calls "our biggest surprise yet." She went on to say that she and Willie were "adopting a newborn baby girl." Her birth mother "is a single mom who wants more kids," so it is possible that this new baby will not be their first biological child.
Korie also wrote that she and Willie were "moving forward with [their] plan to expand [their] family." They have been vocal about their desire to adopt more children with special needs and have said that they would like to add three more children to their family.
Their fifth child, Rebecca, who was adopted when she was eight years old, has special needs too. She has obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Korie wrote on her blog that although it may not be apparent to most people, being parents to four children with special needs has been a challenge for them.
