Fostering to adopt


Fostering for adoption is a specialist adoption scheme for babies and very young children who may still have a chance of being reunited with their birth family.

Fostering for adoption is a specialist scheme for babies and very young children who may still have a chance of living with their birth family. Although it is likely that they will be adopted, a plan for their future has to be agreed by the courts.

You could be approved as a foster carer for the child, with a view to adopting once the court's decision has been made.

It's a great way to build a relationship with the child before adoption, but there is an element of uncertainty until the court's decision is made.
