We are very happy to announce that in February 2021 Scotland’s Adoption Register recorded its 700th match of a child through our family finding services. The match was made through one of our Webinar events where prospective adopters had the opportunity to see video profiles of children waiting for permanent homes. Our 700th match is a 5-year-old boy from West Dunbartonshire who is now waiting to move in with his new family.
This exciting news comes as we celebrate our 10th year since the service began which we hope to mark this year with a national adoption campaign. We look forward to working with Scottish agencies to spread the adoption message and will be focusing particularly on the importance of adopting brothers and sisters, children over 4 years and children with additional support needs.
