What is Adoption?

Adoption is established through a legal process when the birth family is unable to care for a child. In Ontario, adoption can be arranged through child welfare agencies (public adoption), private adoption agencies and international adoption agencies. People often explore options in all three systems.

The Benefits for Children and Families

For children …
To experience healthy development and create a sense of their own self-worth, children need to have roots and feel they belong to a family who truly cares about them. Adoption is a way of achieving this.

For couples and families …
The gift of adoption is not only a benefit to a child, but is a wonderful way for couples who are unable to have children of their own to create a family. It is also a very satisfying way for established families to grow and diversify.
