Post Adoption Support

 

Almost all children placed for adoption in Northern Ireland have had to be parted from both their birth family and later from foster carers, in order to be matched with you and into their new family.

 

While parenting any child will bring a range of joys and challenges, these difficult early experiences can make parenting these adopted children additionally challenging.

 

You might find that talking to a Social Worker with experience and knowledge of adoption issues, or participating in some Post Placement training or information sessions could help.
