Need for adopters

There continues to be a need for adopters for children from East Ayrshire and across Scotland, who are unable to live with their birth families. We are particularly interested to hear from people who feel they may be able to adopt more than one child from the same family.

Adoption is a legal, permanent, life changing experience for all involved. As an adoptive parent, you can provide a child or children with a new home, a new family and a brighter future.

Once an adoption order has been granted, full parental rights and responsibilities relating to the child pass to the adoptive parent/s. Adopted children have the same legal status and inheritance rights as birth children. Once an adoption order has been granted, it cannot be reversed unless there are exceptional circumstances involved.
