What is Adoption?
It’s a life changing experience for you, your family and the children.
Adoption is a way to provide a loving home for children who can for whatever reason, no longer be brought up by their birth parents or within the birth family. After adoption, all rights and responsibilities are transferred from the original parents to the adoptive parents. The child assumes the surname of the new parents, receives an adoption certificate to replace their birth certificate and becomes a permanent and full member of the new family.
It’s a life changing experience for you, your family and the children, adoption is not always easy, but it can be extraordinarily rewarding.
You will receive training and support to help you prepare for adoption and this support is continued for as long as you feel it is needed.
