Most people find that attending an Information Session for Domestic Adoption is a really useful way to start. It gives you the chance to find out more about the children in need of adoption, to hear some real life stories and to find out what the process entails.
If you are unsure if Intercountry or Domestic adoption is for you, IAC can help you to explore these options.
You may wish to attend an Information Session on intercountry adoption as well and to request the Information Pack on Intercountry Adoption.
Once you have gathered information through the Information sessions it is generally helpful to meet with a social worker for an Initial Interview to help in your decision making. Following this interview, and assuming that there were no contraindications to your eligibility either in the UK, IAC would send you a Registration of Interest Form. The FAQ’s answer some of the questions regarding eligibility.
The following is a brief overview. Please refer to the Information Pack for Domestic Adoption for a detailed explanation.
If all checks satisfactory prospective adopters proceed to:
“I really couldn’t fault the process and I couldn’t have wished for a more approachable social worker”
“Everything was great at the IAC Panel and they were all very helpful and very professional. It was good experience for us.”
