Your Personal Adoption Guide

I don't know what to do! 

Who do I speak to?

What happen when?


I would like to say 'Congratulations!' for having begun your journey to become a parent through adoption. Despite what you have heard the process is quite straight forward if you have the right support.

Don't worry, we are here to help you step by step through the whole process from initial thoughts to bringing your baby home and onwards to becoming a successful adoptive family.

First read all the information on the website.

    • When you have an understanding of the process and what is expected then it is time to explore your options and have any of your burning questions answered.  Talking to a specialist, someone who has been there and done it and knows exactly what your concerns may be, makes all the difference from thinking about adoption to making the first steps to becoming a family. 
  • Before you begin your home study, you must know where you are going to adopt from. It is really important that you have all the most up to date information available. Things change quite quickly in inter-country adoption and you do not want to have set your heart on one country only to find out that the laws have changed and you no longer qualify. Please find this information in our ebooks to be launched July 2017.

 

Congratulations you have begun the adoption journey!

 Thanks again for all your help, you have been so incredibly informative, helpful and also so inspiring about it all. I have really enjoyed meeting you and learning about adoption through you has no doubt enriched me. SM

We adopted our daughter in 2004 from Russia. It was very difficult not knowing the process nor having someone here in London with the right experience to understand what step we needed to take to go through this incredible but daunting adventure. I read books, attended courses and seminars, spoke to agencies and every night I surfed the Internet for information. Exhausting! I came across an incredible amount of resources and I was never sure if what I was reading was correct or up to date. Not to mention the time that took to go through what was available. At the end we opted for an American agency but what I needed was a guide and a mentor close to home and I could only dream of someone that could take this role here in England. When I learned that Cecile, whom I met when we were both going through the adoption process, had decided to be that guide I said 'I wish you were there when we were adopting!' It would have save us a lot of time, money and stress knowing that we had someone close by that had lived first hand that experience, to help us through it. I have no doubts that Cecile's knowledge, fighting spirit, courage and caring nature will help many families to bring home their child. Take advantage of this opportunity as she knows how important it is for our kids to come home to us. I wish you all the best in the most incredible adventure of your life.
