How can I adopt a baby?

Answer

When thinking about adopting a baby, it is important not to rush the decision, to decide whether you want to adopt from your own culture or country, and whether you want to meet the parents of the child you will be adopting.

The adoption agency will need to assess your competency and ability to raise a child, and this might involve one or more interviews and visits to your home.
