Adopt a child from another country

You may be thinking about adopting a child from a different country. It is important to remember that removing a child from their country of birth, their culture and extended family is not always in their best interest. 

However, a child from overseas can be adopted if:

  • they can't be cared for in a safe environment in their own country
  • the adoption would be in their best interest
  • the adopter has been assessed as eligible and suitable to adopt from overseas by an adoption agency in the UK.
