Adopting a Child in Scotland? by Robert Swift


Adopting A Child In Scotland 

Each year hundreds of children in Scotland are placed with adoptive families. They are given the chance to make new beginnings and to experience love, care and security. But many hundreds more are still waiting for the opportunity to benefit from family life.

If you have ever considered building your family through adoption then this practical guide - the first of its kind in Scotland - will tell you everything you need to know about adopting a child. It explores:

  • the kinds of children who need new families
  • what sort of people adoption agencies are looking for and why
  • how to go about it
  • how children and families are matched and brought together
  • what happens after adoption and the support available

Written by an adoptive parent, and brought to life with the experiences of both adults and children who have been through the adoption process themselves, this book is essential reading.
