Adoption Changes Lives is about celebrating adoption in Northern Ireland and sharing inspiring stories from local families.  #adoptionNI

Every year almost 90 children are adopted from care across the region and we need more people to come forward who can help provide our children with the forever families they need.

We particularly need adopters:

  • To help keep brothers and sisters together;
  • For children aged 4 years and over; and
  • For children with disabilities or more complex health and care needs
