Welcome to the adoption pages of the website where you will find information about taking the first steps to becoming an adoptive parent and what this could mean for you and your family.
At any one time there are around 30 children in Bournemouth who cannot be brought up with their birth family and need people like you to adopt them and provide a stable, loving and permanent family home. When you adopt a child you agree to care for them emotionally, financially and physically as if they were your own. Adoption is a legal process in which parental responsibility is transferred to the adoptive parents.
Adoption is for life and the child will become part of your family forever. This is a big decision to make and one that will not only change the child’s life for the better, but will alter your life in every way.
We understand that choosing to adopt a child is not a decision that can be made easily. We hope that the information on this website will inspire you and help you decide to take the first steps to completing your family.
