Can I adopt?

Adoption is about becoming the legal parent(s) to a child who is no longer able to live with their birth family.

Adoption is a process which transfers all legal responsibility for a child to new parent(s) (the adopters).

The adopted child becomes a full member of the new family including taking the family name. Adoption is a permanent and lifelong commitment and decision.

Could you offer a child a loving and permanent family?
