Talking to Adopters

It can be really helpful to talk to someone who has already adopted. When you are new to adoption, and you would like to hear a different perspective, please get in touch and we will try to put you in contact with an approved adopter who has real life experience. Or you may choose to get in contact with We Are Family or New Family Social.

Peer to peer support

To have access to the experience and knowledge of someone who has been through the process, is invaluable and can be a great source of comfort. Plus being able to help others is wonderful.

If you’re an experienced adopter and feel you could share your insight around the adoption assessment process, introductions, post placement/order or adoption support services, we would love to hear from you.

Adopters say that the following topics were frequently covered:

  • The assessment and matching process;
  • The settling in phase;
  • Becoming a new family;
  • Settling in at school;
  • Behavioural concerns
  • How to be the best advocate for your child;
  • Support letterbox contact
