Our Children

Western Bay Adoption Services
  • Our children, it's all about family.

    When most people think about adoption, they imagine babies. Whilst we do have babies that need to be adopted, the reality is that the majority of children who need adopting across the Western Bay region are over the age of one and there is a wide age range. In addition, we always have several sibling groups and those with complex needs.

    At any time, there can be as many as 60 children in the Western Bay area that need to be adopted. These children range from 6 months to 9 years old. The important thing is linking and matching the right child with the right adopters. It may be that only a small number of these children will be suitable for you.

    Our children come from a variety of different backgrounds and are just as diverse and unique as you are!

    What they all have in common is that they have had unsettled lives and what they need is a loving, supportive and permanent home. You can transform their lives. By doing that, they will transform yours!
