There are lots of myths out there about why people can’t adopt, but rest assured, most of them aren’t true.
A wide range of people can and do adopt. You can be male or female; married; single; in a civil partnership; divorced or living with a partner; with or without children; from any cultural background; employed or not; able bodied or living with a disability.
Our most important expectation is that prospective adopters show an understanding of children’s needs and are able to provide a safe and caring home.
We currently have 50 children looking for their forever families. Could you be who they’re looking for?
