Adoption


We sometimes get questions about:

  • children who are adopted wanting to get in touch with their birth parents or siblings

  • children who are adopted who don't want to be contacted by their birth parents

  • children who are adopted having problems with their adopted parents and wanting to live with their birth parents

  • children wanting to be adopted.  If there's problems at home, please have a look at our factsheets on Child Abuse and Domestic Violence, or send us a Lawmail.

If you have any of these questions or a different question about adoption, please send us a Lawmail and we can give you advice.  

Please note: we can't give advice to adults looking to adopt a child unless they are asking a question on behalf of the child and the child is too young to ask us themselves.
