What is adoption?
Adoption is about becoming the legal parent(s) to child who is no longer able to live with their birth family.
All children are entitled to grow up as part of a loving family which can meet their needs during childhood and beyond.
Can you offer a child a safe and supportive home in which they can flourish?
Adoption is a process which transfers all legal responsibility for a child to new parent(s) (the adopters).
The child becomes a full member of the new family including taking the family name. Adoption is a permanent and lifelong commitment and decision.
Birmingham is a richly diverse community and the children who need adopting reflect this.
Therefore we welcome people from all backgrounds to contact us and start the discussion about adoption.
