Successful Adoption in Ontario: A Guide

A Guide to Successful Adoption in Ontario
February 24, 2023 admin 0 Comments

Adoption is a legal means for another family to permanently take the responsibility of raising a child and become the child’s new family. Sometimes, in unfortunate cases, the birth parents are unable to care for their children. Other times the parents, for a variety of reasons, may seek a new family to care for their child. The goal of adoption is to match a family with a child based on the child’s needs. This can take time and families and children may need support for successful and stable placements. To become an adoptive parent in Ontario, you must be a resident. Adoptive parents can be a couple or a single person and come from various backgrounds, including different religions, ethnicities or sexual orientations. Sometimes children and youth up to 18 who can’t live safely at home with their parents or caregivers may be cared for by alternate caregivers, including foster parents.
