Online Adoption Panel Event

Join us on Monday 11th July and hear all about family life from our experienced Adopters!

Interested in hearing about family life after you adopt?

This summer we are hosting the first of our Adoptive Family Panels. These panels will bring together different families with one thing in common, they all adopted through Scottish Adoption. You will be able to hear direct from the parents as they share their journey to parenthood and the different experiences they have all faced.

You will be able to put questions to the panel and find out more about what it is like to be parents to brothers and sisters, older children or children with some complex needs.

The panel will be taking place on Monday 11th of July at 7:00pm until 8:30pm and will be online so you can watch from the comfort of your own home. You need to register in advance for our Adoptive Family Panels via Eventbrite by clicking here.

The highlight for those attending previous information evenings has always been the opportunity to hear directly from our parents. Below is a selection of the feedback we have had from previous events:

“We found the info meeting really useful and informative and a great way to make the idea of adoption more of a reality in terms of it being an option for us. We have talked about looking into it for a while now and it was a really good way to get lots of information and meet the team of people from the agency. Hearing the adoptive dads talk about their experiences was definitely the highlight.”

“It was a very informative night and put a lot of thoughts in my head regarding my future, and how to go about setting these into motion. I’m very glad I came along and felt the staff explained everything and the personal stories from the adopters were the highlight. As a result of the event my partner and myself will be filling out an initial request form with Scottish Adoption to move things forward from this point.”

“Edinburgh event last night was so helpful. Great to see so many other people looking to adopt! Hearing the experiences of the gay dads was good, generally I’m really glad we went!”

“We thought the evening was excellent. Very informative and also relaxed so no pressure on anyone to make decisions or to do anything. We both felt very relaxed, and felt we received a really good overview of what the process involves. We especially enjoyed hearing the adopters speak about their own experiences and how they felt throughout the process. To see their obvious joy and happiness was definitely an inspiration to us both. We’ve already completed our initial enquiry form and have had a response from your office.”
