Could I adopt?

When you adopt, you become the new, permanent parent for a child or children who can’t live with their birth parents. Some of the reasons to form a permanent family by adoption may include:

  • it can be be extremely rewarding to become the new “forever family” for a child or children who are going through a difficult time.
  • as an adoptive parent you will have full parental responsibility. The process itself involves many other people, but once you have adopted, your legal status is straightforward.
  • if you are a couple you will be parenting on an equal footing, as neither of you will have a biological link to your new child.
