At Scottish Adoption we focus exclusively on delivering high quality, innovative services to all affected by adoption in Scotland and further afield.


We have supported many families through their experiences of adoption and we have invited some of them to share their experiences with you.


From our library to information on social media and parenting support, we have a wide range of resources to support you.


  • Worrying About Birth Family

  • A Real Life Life-Story
    Moving through the care system and onto adoption isn’t like the movies. In the movies, adoption life stories show everyone prancing around and, in the end, they finish with happy and perfect lives. I wish my life was like that, but real adoption life-stories are more complicated, confusing and filled with so many emotions.
