Can I adopt if I already have an adopted child or children?

Posted on: 23 June 2013

We welcome applications from those who already have children, including adopted children.

We expect the child coming into the family to be the youngest, usually by a couple of years at least, in order to  ensure they get their needs met by their new family. A social worker will be happy to discuss with you the implications of adoption for the other children in the family and the children are included as part of the assessment process.
