Adoption is one of the most challenging as well as the most rewarding ways of making a difference to a child’s life. We know that caring for children is a tremendously important task and we aim to guide you through the journey you will take if you decide you want to adopt a child.

Adoption is a lifelong commitment providing a loving, permanent family for a child or children who cannot return to their birth family. When you adopt you take on all the legal rights and responsibilities for your child.

There are many myths and misconceptions surrounding adoption, and many people rule themselves out without finding out all the facts. If you would like to find out more about adopting and what this involves then we urge you not to rule yourself out but count yourself in
