All About Adoption

There are many paths to parenthood, and adoption is one of the most well-known. While some people know that they want to adopt early on in their parenthood journey, this decision takes more time for others.

Adoption isn’t a simple process or an easy option. It’s simply another way to become a parent, which is one of the hardest and most rewarding paths in the world.

We look at adoption in-depth, and speak to people who have been through the process themselves.

What is Adoption?

Children who, for whatever reason, cannot live with their birth parents/family need the security, permanency and love of a new family.

Adoption is the best way of doing this as full legal Parental Responsibility transfers over to adoptive parents and away from the birth parents at the point of a court given Adoption Order, and cannot be revoked. 

New to the idea?

There are over 80 thousand children in the care of local authorities in the UK, and thousands of people who are struggling to be parents. The statistics sound as though they point to a simple solution, but the process of adoption is anything but straightforward.

Adoption can be life-changing in the best possible way, for both the parents and the child. This tends to happen when the idea of adoption is fully explored and processed by the potential parents.
