Profiles of Children
To give you an idea of the types of children that you might adopt, here are some example profiles of children. Current profiles are available at information meetings.
All adopted children are different but all will have experienced separation and loss and many will have experienced a level of abuse or neglect in their earlier childhoods. Often, the main challenge that adopters face is restoring their faith in adults. It’s a long process but over time they will learn to trust you and it will transform their lives – as well as yours!
The ages of the children vary from babies and toddlers to older children up to 10 years of age. We prioritise people who come forward to adopt the children who wait the longest: older children, children with disabilities, siblings and children from some black and minority ethnic backgrounds.
