I already have children, can I still adopt? Yes, definitely. We very much welcome enquiries from people who are already parents. Part of the adoption process will include looking at the effects a placement will have on your current children. Some adopted children would thrive by having a sibling. Our team would be very happy to talk to you and offer further guidance around this. If you would like to know more about adoption and starting the adoption process with ARC Adoption North East and the support available, please contact us.
