What is adoption?
Adoption means providing a permanent, stable home to a child or young person - and by so doing, giving them the chance to fulfill their potential. Adopters can provide a secure family home for children unable to remain with their birth parents. Adoption offers children the opportunity to grow up in a safe and nurturing environment, and is the legal process by which parental responsibility for a child or young person is given to a new parent or parents. Finally adoption is a permanent, life-long commitment to a child or young person.
