Adoption is the legal process that gives children and youth a permanent, loving relationship with a new family when their birth families are unable to care for them. Adoption is intended to provide children and youth with the stability and lifelong security that comes from a permanent home. Adoption is one permanency option considered for children and youth in permanent care, called Extended Society Care, of Children’s Aid Societies in Ontario.
Our goal is to keep families together whenever possible. If that can’t happen, we turn first to extended family or someone who has an existing relationship with the child or youth. When families and their networks are not able to care for a child, foster parents play a crucial role in caring for and nurturing them until they can safely return home.
