Why is Adopt Change needed?

Every child deserves a family, and we embrace adoption as a positive way of forming a permanent loving family. We support capacity building of families to ensure that vulnerable children are able to remain within their birth family where possible. When that is not possible or safe, adoption must be a legitimate option when considering permanency for vulnerable children.
