Adoption provides a child with a family or whānau when their birthparents are not able to raise them. The most important consideration when it comes to adoption is what’s best for the child.

We work with whānau or families wanting to adopt, as well as birthparents who want to place a child for adoption. We’ll support and guide you through the adoption process. We can also help if you’re adopted and want to find out information about your birthparents, or if you are a birth parent seeking information about your birth child.
