About Adoption

About Adoption

For children who face growing up in care, adoption can make a huge difference to their development – and it can also be a life-changing experience for their adoptive parent or parents. It’s a personal decision, and for all parents who adopt there will be many emotional ups and downs along the way. But that decision may lead to years of joy and happiness that goes with raising a family and seeing the child in their care grow up and achieve goals which may initially have seemed beyond their reach.
