  • Tracing Families
    I was born in Edinburgh in 1980, and it is probably fair to say that my initial start to life was not the greatest.
  • Scottish Adoption Experience
    It is hard to summarise the support given to us by Scottish Adoption into a few paragraphs, given that they have offered us such varied and tailored support over the years.
  • Pre Placement Preparation Group
    We recently held a Pre-Placement Preparation Group and asked if someone would be able to write about their experience of the group so we could share their experiences online with everyone.
  • Kirsty and Mark
    Kirsty and Mark very kindly took up our offer of doing a video blog instead of writing everything down, and we couldn't be happier with the result.
  • Pre School Groups
    One of the best thing about becoming a parent through adoption is that you are never really alone.
  • Groups
    Our son attended the P1 Transition Group and our daughter attended the Girls Group.

  • Single Adopter
    I approached Scottish Adoption after having researched various agencies and the local authority.
  • Adoptive Dad
    Our journey to starting a family was definitely not straight forward and we certainly took the scenic route.
  • Same Sex Couple
    It was with slight trepidation that we made the first call to Scottish Adoption.
  • Our Sibling Adoption Story
    We took it for granted that we would have a family easily, so my first miscarriage was such a shock
