Pre stage one – Exploration and Information Sharing
Following your initial contact with us, you will be invited to an Information Event that will go through the process of becoming adoptive parents and the circumstances of children waiting for adoptive families.
‘A highly informative evening, we were made to feel at ease and are excited to start the process’
‘We hadn’t expected information on matching and support at this stage, this was great to hear, the training available sounds brilliant, thank you’
The next stage is a home visit from an ACE social worker which gives you the opportunity to discuss any issues or queries arising from the Information Event, from any information you have read about adoption, or the processes involved either for yourselves or the child(ren) you are hoping to adopt. The social worker will also start to gather information about you and your household.
