What is adoption?

what is adoption

There are over 5,000 children at any one time in the UK waiting to be adopted.

Adoption is a way of providing the security, permanency and love of a new family when it is not possible for a child to be raised by his/her birth parents or within the birth family.

Adoption is a legal process which transfers parental responsibility from the child’s birth parents to their adoptive parents. The Adoption Order is granted by a court when the child(ren) have been living with the prospective adopters and all concerned, including the child, are happy. Once an Adoption Order is made it cannot be revoked.
