Adoption

Our adoption team finds families for local children who can no longer be cared for by their birth families. As an adopter you take on the legal rights and responsibility for a child, and they become a member of your family. In addition to the skills required by adopters, you will be making a lifelong commitment to your adopted child.

Many children are looking for a permanent home because their birth parents can’t care for them any longer. This is often due to birth parents not receiving the right care in childhood, and therefore are not able to provide the right care for their own children.

These children need love and stability for the rest of their childhood; a family they can rely on in their adult lives. We strive to ensure children maintain a connection with their birth families.
