I am having fertility treatment, can I adopt? In order to begin the adoption process it is important that you have completed any fertility treatment and have had time to emotionally recover from it. Our team will sensitively discuss your individual circumstances with you, to ensure you are ready for moving forward with adoption. We would be happy to offer further guidance around this if it would be helpful. 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.
