When an adoption order is made this ends a child’s legal tie with their birth family. For this reason, adoption is unusual in kinship care arrangements. An adoption order will change the legal relationship with the child’s parents. They legally cease to be the child’s parents.

Our Adoption page provides information about when adoption may be looked at for a child. It explains the law and processes involve.  Though written for parents, wider family members may find the information and advice there helpful.
