From Pat / 15 May 2020


Hi there, you are very welcome to Ask Pat.

You are asking how do you get adopted into another family?

There is a procedure available for putting children up for adoption.

We cannot answer exactly how you would get into an adopted family but we would be letting you know that as a child you have the right to be safe and to be happy, cared for and provided for.

On the Childline website at you may find some useful information in the ‘info and advice’ section, under ‘Home and Families’, also, Childline has a 24 hour phone service available at 1800 66 66 66.

Perhaps you would like to contact us and we could talk about what is going on for you and support you through this time and explore with you what options are available to you. We would never judge you and our service is confidential.

Thank you for contacting us and we wish you well,
