Adoption@Heart understands that the adoption journey for both the child and their parents is a lifelong process that will often have many ups, downs and challenges along the way.
During stage 2 of the adoption process, you will be allocated your own adoption support worker who will support you through the linking, matching and placement of a child.
However, support for families continues to be available should you wish to access it after the legal part of your adoption journey ends and throughout your child’s life.
Below is a snapshot of the support services we provide:
- Monthly adopter’s support group
