Every adoption starts with the needs of the child.
Adoption is a very significant event for everyone involved. Family and Children’s Services of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville evaluates every adoption candidate based on the specialized needs and best interests of the child.
What kinds of people adopt children?
Adoptive parents come from all cultural, racial and ethnic backgrounds, and understand that adopting a child is a lifelong commitment. They are financially stable and can manage the addition of another child. They may have lots of parenting experience, or none at all. They must be at least 18 years old and have no history that will prevent them from adopting.
Some other factors may also be taken into consideration, such as being in a stable relationship of at least two years (including same-sex, common-law, or single applicants), having the consent of other family members, and being in good health.
To begin the process of adoption with FCSLLG, applicants must reside in the counties of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville and surrounding areas. To learn more, call 1-855-667-2726.
