I am single, can I adopt? Yes absolutely, ARC Adoption welcomes enquiries from single people. Lots of our adopters are single parents who have successfully adopted one or more children. Isabelle didn't know that single people could adopt, but she said it is the best thing she's ever done. ARC Adoption North East has a dedicated support team which offers a variety of support to adopters including social and online peer support, support groups and a Buddy service. If you would like to know more about adoption with ARC Adoption North East and the support available, please contact us.
