Adopting a child can transform their whole world and be a fulfilling experience for people who choose to adopt. Fife Council’s Adoption Team are available to work with you to ensure you have the information to help you decide.
Why choose to adopt?
There are many reasons why children can’t stay with their birth families: some children come from complex family background some children may have experienced trauma in their life Adoption is a life-long decision: where a child becomes part of your family giving you the same legal rights as birth parents giving the child the same rights if you have your own birth children By choosing to adopt you will be offering a child a stable, secure and loving permanent home.
We want to make the best decision for the child, so we’re looking for people with a variety of skills and experiences who can meet each child’s needs. In particular we need families for sibling groups and older children.
We would love to hear from you if you are:
- over 21*either single, married, civil partners, or living together as a couple for at least two years
- medically fit a non smoker
- have some child care experience
A Concurrent Carer means you both a Foster Carer and an Adopter so you can take babies from when they are born, or soon after. The Concurrent Carer acts as the Foster Carer for the child and supports contact with the birth family while the court decides the child’s future. A concurrent placement gives the child the continuity of care that is important for a good start in life.
