Children needing adoption

Most children needing adoption will have been separated from their birth families at birth or in early childhood, many of these children will live with foster carers while plans are made for their future. As a result of this less than ideal start in life most of the children with an adoption plan will carry with them some degree of uncertainty about their future well being and needs.

We have children from across Yorkshire and Humber needing adoption; they may have siblings; they may have different ethnic backgrounds; they may have experienced significant harm as a result of a parent’s drug or alcohol misuse, domestic violence or mental health issues.

In short our children have a range of needs, personalities, abilities and vulnerabilities, and some have significant disabilities too, but all our children have one thing in common; they all have potential. They all need a permanent, stable loving home to enable them to make the most of life's opportunities. If this is something you feel you can provide and you meet some basic criteria we want to hear from you.

We have a page on Child Stories for some of the children we are currently family finding for.

We believe in adoption, because every day we are reminded how powerful adoption can be for adults and children; we want all our children with a plan for adoption to have the opportunity to grow up in a family. If adoption is something you think you could consider then speak to us and come along to one our information events  to find out more.

Michelle and Chris started their adoption journey wanting a baby girl and completed it by adopting a five-year-old boy.

‘You learn a lot as an adopter. Michelle and Chris learned a little personality goes a long way!’

You've got a lot of new things to get used to. Some things you get used to more quickly than you would think and other things seemed to take longer. It's not like having a baby, because our son has already got a personality, he's already learnt a lot of behaviors and he can speak for himself.
