What is adoption?

Adoption is about becoming the legal parent(s) to child who is no longer able to live with their birth family. It is a process which transfers all legal responsibility for a child to new parent(s) (the adopters). 

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