Adopting a child is a big and life-changing decision, whether you are single or in a relationship. As you start the adoption process, you will be given lots of guidance and support from St David’s to help you feel ready to expand your family.
If you have any children already, they will be involved in the process, as this will also be a change for them. Helping them to understand the journey before you are placed with a new child will mean a smoother and happier transition for everyone.
When you are approved for adoption, you will receive a year-long free membership to Adoption UK, a support organisation run by and for adopters. This, alongside the support from St David’s, will help you see that you are not alone in this process, and will connect you with other adopters in similar situations.
