Will adopting after bio kids cause sibling rivalry?

Hi!

Our family is considering adopting a child 5 or 6 years old- we're older parents and already have 2 bio twins who are pre/teens and really want to give to a child in need. We've heard a lot of advice about adoption from first time or single parents but haven't heard a lot about families with kids adopting. Our major concern is how it will play an effect on our bio kids. Will it make sibling jealousy/rivalry more likely, or will it possibly even be awkward between them? We would love to here the adoption experiences of families with kids.

Thank you so much!
