We both work, can we still adopt? Yes, absolutely. We welcome enquiries from people in employment. You will be expected to take some time away from work to help your child settle into your home however, and it will be important for you to consider how you can fit your work commitments around the needs of your child, rather than the other way around. Our team will be 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.
