Becoming an adoptive parent
5. Families our children need
Always wanted a big family?
We need adopters who can take sibling groups (2 children or more)
Ok to be different?
We need adopters who can care for children with medical needs, enduring conditions and disabilities
Not fond of the baby stage?
We need adopters for children aged 3 to 7 years
We need adopters who can meet the needs of children who have diverse cultural and ethnic heritage.
Interested in adopting a child aged 0-4 years but maybe not sure about Fostering for Adoption just yet. We still need adopters for this age group.
Early Permanence (Fostering for Adoption)
Sometimes we need adopters who can also act as foster carers for very young children - this is called Early Permanence (Fostering for Adoption).
Generally, these placements are made when it is considered very unlikely a child will return to their birth parents but legal decisions still have to be made on the best outcome for the child.
You can find out more about this on the First4Adoption website to decide if this is an option for you.
