What adoption has meant for me

While adoption can have many challenges, primarily it is very fulfilling and rewarding.  Here, some of our adoptive parents tell us what adoption has meant for them.

“Adoption has given us the gift of a beautiful, wonderful family. It has become so much more to us than simply completing our family. It means our house is bursting at the seams with love for our fantastic little boy. Each day I look at him in wonderment that he is so happy and settled. Adoption for us became our way of building our family, but very quickly it became apparent that this child, our child, was born for us. I never imagined quite how much love I could have for a little person until we adopted”.  

Mother of two year old boy,

“Our life has been turned upside down in the best possible way.  They are not just part of our family, they are family.  It is far from easy and it can be challenging at times, but in all honesty, we cannot imagine our lives without our beautiful, funny and loving daughters.  We wouldn't change them for the world”.

Parents of 7 and 5 year old girls,

“I found St Margaret's to be a very experienced and helpful agency  and would not hesitate in recommending them to potential adopters.”

“The process was a lot quicker and easier than we thought and all the staff are efficient and supportive throughout”
