Adoption is a way of providing a new, permanent family for a child or siblings who cannot grow up with their birth parents or family.
It’s a legal procedure where all the parental responsibility is transferred to the adopters and the child becomes a full legal member of their new adoptive family. The child you adopt will take your family’s surname and assumes the same rights as if they had been born to you.
