Can I Adopt?
There are a lot of myths about who can adopt. The reality is that there is no such thing as a 'typical' or ‘ideal’ adoptive parent. Being a parent to a child who has not been born to you gives an extra dimension to family life.
You will need to have understanding, patience and commitment to the task; all things which every parent should have. We appreciate that not everyone will be immediately prepared to parent a child but don't worry, we provide lots of training, support and advice throughout the enquiry, assessment, matching process and following the granting of an Adoption Order so you can be assured we'll always be there to help.
Adoption Tees Valley are looking for people who have something to offer to the children we are family finding for. This means you will probably be the sort of person who is flexible, adaptable, resilient, a good communicator and willing to develop new skills.
If you're thinking about adopting in the Tees Valley and North East area and would like to start the process you can either give us a call on 01642 526400 or you can request an initial visit from one of our friendly team by clicking here.
