Adopting a child means becoming that child’s family for life.

The process includes:

  • a period of training and assessment before being approved
  • identifying the needs of a child, and finding a family to meet those needs
  • a period of introductions and moving in
  • adoption approved by court – becoming the child’s legal parents.

The process of approval and waiting can be long, but the service has helped many adopters and local children to have a new and happy family life together.

The North Wales Adoption Service is a combined service of local authority adoption teams in Gwynedd, Wrexham, Flintshire, Denbighshire, Conwy and Ynys Môn. We work together to help find local families for children in north Wales.
