You never forget the moment you first meet your child. Mine was six years old.
Sometimes superheroes reside in the hearts of children fighting huge battles.
Exceptional children, need exceptional parents.
Welcome to Adoption West
If you live in Bristol, BATHNES, Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset or Wiltshire (or somewhere close-by) and you are thinking about adopting, then you have come to the right place.
Adoption is all about making a positive difference to a child’s life and providing a stable, loving and permanent home for a child who, for whatever reason, is not able to live with their birth family.
Making the decision to adopt is one of the biggest steps you can make, but also one of the most rewarding. Feel free to contact us to start your adoption story.
LGBT+ people in the UK are urged to explore adoption and fostering as potential parenting routes in a campaign launching today. With 80,000 children in care in 2020 in England alone, LGBT+ Adoption & Fostering Week brings together agencies and LGBT+ possible applicants.
Adoption West have, and always will, encourage anyone interested in adoption to get in touch. We are here to answer your questions....
We are so keen to hear from people that would consider siblings and would love to discuss all the positives adopting siblings can bring, like shared history, same contact arrangements, one assessment and perhaps most importantly enabling brothers and sisters to write the next chapter of their lives TOGETHER.
At the beginning of January 2021 Adoption West had 71 children with a plan for adoption, waiting to be linked with a family, of which 45 have a sibling they need to be placed with. We are encouraging applicants to consider whether they have the capacity to care for siblings.
