Thinking about adopting, where do I start?

Just sat down and worked out I have been trying since 2001 (with my ex) plus we split up, and since 2007 with my OH.

Any suggestions would be great x

Hey Hun,

I have absolutely no idea i presume a government website would have some answers as they are doing a big recruitment drive for foster carers and adoptive parents at the mo. Have u thought about surrogacy? A friend of mine is looking into it after suffering her 5th MC

If you find out anything from your friend please let me know Smile

Hi Ice, the link that mummybecks put up is a good start. there is a section on there that asks for your postcode & it will tell you your local authority that can help. Here is a direct link to that page http://www.adoption.org.uk/agencies/default.html all you need to do then is either pick up the phone or send an email. I would recommend phoning though Very Happy

I am not sure if you have seen my other posts but I have been through the whole adoption process & we have just been linked to a 1 year old boy who comes home in July Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy feel free to pm me if you have any questions Razz

hiya im adopted an my mum is a foster carer, your best bet is to ring you local social services as they will know of all the children/babies who are being placed for adoption and they will be able to help you from there, you used to have to have police checks but not too sure if you still do, it does take quite a while but be patient and it will be worth it in the end . . . Good Luck xxxxx
