What is adoption?

Adoption is about making a real difference to a child’s life. It is the way in which children who cannot be brought up by their own parents become a permanent member of a new family. Adoption transfers all legal rights and responsibilities for the child from the birth parents to the adoptive parents who then have all the rights and responsibility that go along with being a parent. Adoption is a rewarding and lifelong commitment to provide a child with a new family and a safe, secure future.
